Body exhumed after six months to probe man’s cause of death in MP



Barwani (Madhya Pradesh): After six months of his death, the remains of a man were exhumed to probe the cause of his death as his family alleged that he was murdered by a relative, police said on Friday.

Police had found a body on June 28 last year and since it could not be identified that time, they had buried it.

However, later, the family members of one - Sriram - claimed that it was his body after identifying his clothes and articles recovered by the police from the body.

The family then lodged a case alleging that Sriram's brother-in-law had taken him on the pretext of getting him a job, but since then he had been missing.

Later, on the basis of the complaint, Sriram's brother-in-law Mangilal Singh was arrested.

Yesterday, the remains were exhumed by police officials in the presence of the block medical officer which would be sent to a lab in Sagar for testing, to ascertain the cause of death, Thikri police added.
