KARACHI: The judicial magistrate has granted authorization for the exhumation of Dr Maha Shah’s body and post mortem after being requested by the Karachi police who had expressed suspicions over her previous medical report.
The judicial magistrate South of Friday in its written decision said that the court has no objection over the exhumation of Dr Maha’s body for post mortem and it will not intervene in the ongoing investigation by the prosecution.
The session court instructed concerned authorities for implementing all regulations of exhumation and post mortem.
The police department had decided to seek court permission for the exhumation of Dr Maha Shah’s body for conducting post mortem again after declaring the previous medical report ‘wrong’ on September 1.
Police had said that the 9mm pistol had been shot in her head from the right hand, whereas, the medical report stated the bullet shot from the left hand. The police had claimed that the medico-legal officer (MLO) had released her medical report without conducting a post mortem.
Clear reasons for the case will come after conducting a post mortem of the deceased woman, police had added.
Dr Maha Ali who committed suicide in Karachi’s Defense area on August 18, was a practicing doctor in a private hospital near Bilawal House in Clifton.
She was also an influencer on social media with a large following. Dr Maha was associated with the South City Hospital and her family was shifted a rental house just 15 days ago of the incident.
