CMCH board gets Tonu’s full DNA report
Law enforcers today submitted to the Comilla Medical College Hospital the full report of DNA test on college student Sohagi Jahan Tonu.
Gazi Ibrahim, the investigation officer of Tonu murder case, submitted the full DNA report to the three-member CMCH board that had conducted Tonu’s second autopsy.
Nazmul Karim Khan, special superintendent of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Comilla-Noakhali division, confirmed it to The Daily Star.
Samples including pieces of Tonu's clothes and her four teeth were tested at the CID laboratory in Dhaka.
Tonu, a student of Comilla Victoria Government College and theatre activist, was found murdered in the Comilla Cantonment area on March 20. The killing sparked huge public outcry.
Following a court order, Tonu's body was exhumed and the three-member board conducted a second autopsy on March 30. The report is yet to be prepared.
After almost two months after the killing of the 19-year-old college student the CID on May 16 said Tonu was raped before she was murdered.
The latest findings expose the flaws in the inquest and first autopsy reports which did not find any evidence of rape.
