Hyderabad, Feb 16: The Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday directed the video recording of the autopsy conducted on two Maoists killed in an alleged gunfight in Telanga’s Warangal district last September be sent to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi. A division bench of Acting Chief Justice Dilip B. Bhosale and Justice S.V. Bhatt passed the orders while hearing a petition filed by a civil liberties group, which alleged that Maoists Sruthi and Vidyasagar were killed in a staged gunfight. According to police, the Maoists were killed in an exchange of fire in the Mulug reserve forest area in Tadwai mandal in Warangal district on September 15.
The bench directed that experts should go through the video recording to find out if there were injuries other than the bullet wounds. It asked AIIMS director to submit the report in a sealed cover. Doctors of MGM Hospital, Warangal, who conducted the autopsy had stated in their report the two Maoists died of bullet injuries and there were no other injuries on the bodies.
The petitioner, however, voiced its doubts on the autopsy report. To this, Additiol Advocate General Ramchandra Rao informed the court that the autopsy proceeding was video recorded. (IANS)
