Body of a 14-year-old boy was exhumed from the grave for autopsy by a team of medical board in Bharatpur after a local court ordered for postmortem on Monday.

Muvvi, a resident of Dayan Ka Was village under Sikri police station, had registered a complaint with the police on February 3 against six people of her village for murdering her son Alim Khan. The accused have been identified as Ramseed, Shakti, Naajar, Mamla Jafru, Mahmood and Dayan Ka Waas sarpanch Haneef Khan.

Alim Khan died on August 4, 2017, allegedly after some villagers assaulted him and forced his relatives to bury the body the same day.

The boy’s body was dug out in the presence of a three-member team of doctors and sent for the post mortem. Sikri sub-divisional magistrate Rajveer Singh, Deeg circle officer (police) Anil Meena and Sikri station house officer (SHO) Ram Naresh Meena were present during the postmortem. After the post mortem, the body was buried again.

The Sikri SHO said that a local court had ordered the police and local administration for the postmortem. “Police will investigate the matter after receiving the postmortem report,” he said.

In her complaint, the mother of the deceased alleged that the accused had attacked his son and left him to die. “He died due to the injuries some days after the attack. They forced us to bury the body and warned us against approaching the police,” she stated.
