Fresh autopsy reveals ‘bruises’ on Diaz’s body
Fresh autopsy revealed some bruises on the body of Bangladesh Chhatra League central leader Diaz Irfan Chowdhury, who was previously believed to have committed suicide.
Some bruises were found on Diaz’s body, said Dr Sohel Mahmud, assistant professor of Dhaka Medical College’s forensic department, today after concluding autopsy.
“We can’t tell anything definitive now. We will have to wait for viscera tests and other test reports,” he told The Daily Star this afternoon.
A three-member committee of the Dhaka Medical College carried out a fresh autopsy after Diaz’s body was exhumed in Chittagong yesterday for the purpose.
The board will inspect the crime scene and analyse the reports before filing a complete report.
On November 20, Diaz, central assistant secretary of BCL, was found hanging in his room. The first autopsy had said Diaz committed suicide.
