Injury mark found on Diaz’s body
Doctors, who have conducted the second post-mortem of Diaz Irfan Chowdhury on Sunday, said they have found injury mark on his body. “There was injury mark on the body, but we can't disclose details at this point," Dr Sohel Mahmud, head of Forensic department of Dhaka Medical College Hospital, told the media while replying to the query whether they found any injury mark on the body of Diaz, a former leader of Bangladesh Chhatra League's Chittagong University unit. Sohel, also head of the three-member medical board formed for conducting Diaz’s fresh autopsy, said: “We will prepare our viscera reports  after testing  his teeth, neck tissue in a couple of days." Before submitting the report, the team will also visit the spot where he was found dead and also talk to the doctors who had earlier conducted Diaz’s first post-mortem, he said. Diaz’s body was exhumed on Saturday for a second post-mortem examination as ordered by a Chittagong court on December 6. Diaz, former assistant secretary of BCL central committee and also the former joint secretary of BCL CU unit, was found dead at his flat near the university’s Gate No 2 on November 20. His family and BCL activists claimed he was murdered by his rivals. The first autopsy report, which said Diaz had killed himself, was rejected by his family who demanded another post-mortem examination to determine the cause of death. Chittagong University’s Assistant Proctor Anwar Hossain was dismissed by the university authorities following protests over Diaz’s death.
