Early Times Report
mendhar, Nov 16: The authorities in Poonch district on Friday exhumed a body for DNA testing, in a case of mistaken identity, as the dead man had been presumed by a family as their missing son and was laid to rest in March this year.
The exhumation was ordered by Rahul Yadav, District Magistrate (DM) Poonch, on the request of the Railway police, in Kasab village of Mendhar tehsil to conduct a DNA test.
Last year, one Mohammad Muzamil, son of Nazam Din, of Kasba village went missing. A report was lodged by his family with the police on March 9.
Later, the Railway police recovered an unidentified and semi-decomposed body of a man on railway track at Vijaypur railway station near Jammu and released its photograph for identification.
Muzamil's family approached the police with the claim that the body was of Muzamil, and on March 13 it was brought to Kasab village after legal formalities. After performing religious rites the body was laid to rest.
There was however a twist to the story, when on October 3, Muzamil rang up his family, saying that he was returning home two days later. On October 5, he appeared at his home leading to a sense of bewilderment and relief among his family members and relatives.
After Muzamil's homecoming, he approached the local police and informed them that he was presumed dead and an unidentified youth had been buried inadvertently.
Police brought the matter into the notice of seniors and accordingly Railway police was informed; its team reached village Kasab to begin fresh probe under section 174CrPC to re-identify the body.
On the request of Additional SP, Railway, Jammu (vide his office letter dated 12/11/2018) DM, Poonch on Thursday issued ordered exhumation of the body of unidentified youth for DNA profiling.
"On the directions from the DM, a four member team including Dr. Mohammad Ashfaq, Dr Abrar Ahmed, Dr Mohammad Azam and Dr. Javed Iqbal and paramedical staff was deputed to exhume the body on Friday in the presence of police and Tehsildar Mendahr, Taraf Hussain," said Dr Parvaiz Ahmed, BMO, Mendhar.
He said samples like teeth, hairs, bones etc will be sent to Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for DNA profile to ascertain the exact identity of the deceased.
"The body shall thereafter be reburied," the DM's order added.
