Tonu’s body to be exhumed for fresh autopsy

A Comilla court today ordered police to exhume the body of Victoria College student Sohagi Jahan Tonu for fresh autopsy.

The court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Joinab Begum passed the order after Manjurul Alam, officer-in-charge of Detective Branch (DB) of police in Comilla, submitted a petition seeking permission for exhumation of the body, the DB official told The Daily Star.

“We seek permission to exhume the body for the sake of investigation,” Manjurul Alam said.
