New Delhi: Indian doctors on Tuesday ruled out any foul play in the death of Indian prisoner Kirpal Singh, who died in Lahore's Kot Lakhpat Jail last week.
The announcement was made by the Indian doctors based on the outcomes of the post-mortem which was performed by them on Tuesday evening.
The doctors also said that some internal body part have been found missing from Kirpal Singh's body. However, they attributed it to the first post-mortem, which was performed by Pakistani doctors. They also told that there were no injury marks on Singh's body.
"It was found that there is no internal or external injury on the body. Some of the organs of the body are missing. They could have been removed to take samples during first post-mortem in Pakistan," said Dr Ashok, head of the panel which performed the post-mortem.
Answering to a question about the cause of Singh's death, the doctors told that it was possible to tell only after analysing the report of the chemical report, which needs some more time to come.
"Cause of Kirpal's death not established yet. Will be known after going through the report of chemical examiner and previous post-mortem," added Dr Ashok.
Earlier in the day, the family members of Kirpal Singh have complained about the alleged inhuman treatment meted out to him in Pakistan and demanded a fresh post-mortem in India.
Speaking to reporters shortly after Kirpal Singh's body arrived at the Wagah International Border, his nephew said, ''There are injury marks on his face and body. Blood is seeping out from his eyes. We want another post-mortem here so that the truth comes out.''
While alleging that Kirpal Singh was badly tortured in the Pakistani jail, his sister claimed that the authorities there wanted him to admit that he had committed crimes against Pakistan.
The reaction from Kirpal's family came shortly after his body arrived at the Wagah Border check post.
