HC urges investigation officers
Submit autopsy, inquest reports within 10 days of murder
The High Court (HC) asked investigation officers probing murder cases to submit autopsy and inquest reports to concerned magistrates within 10 days of the killings.
A High Court division bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman pronounced the order on Wednesday.
The court also directed to send copies of this order to home secretary, health secretary, director general of Directorate General of Health Services and IG Prisons and asked them to take necessary steps in this regard.
BSS adds: The court came up with the order as one investigation officer Thakur Das Mondal, who is probing a double-murder case in Morelganj, Bagerhat, appeared before the court today and explained why he failed to submit the reports in the case.
The High Court on May 6 summoned the investigation officer as he failed to submit the reports in spite of court’s order.
