Medical board formed for fresh autopsy of Diaz
The three-member medical board led by Forensic department head Dr Shohel Mahmud will conduct the second autopsy around 1pm on Sunday, Dr Shohel told the Dhaka Tribune. Diaz’s was exhumed on Saturday for a second post-mortem examination as ordered on December 6 by a Chittagong court. The body was exhumed from CU campus in the presence of ASP Ohidur, Hathazari Assistant Commissioner (land) and family members around 7:30am. Ohidur said the court did not fix any deadline for the submission of the new post-mortem examination report. “We hope to get the report as soon as possible,” he added. 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 Anwar Hossain was dismissed by the university authorities following protests over Diaz’s death.
