A Noida doctor, who had carried out Aarushi’s post-mortem, on Tuesday told a special CBI court here that the pattern of injuries on the bodies of Aarushi and Hemraj was the same. “There were four injuries on the body of the victim. Injuries 1 and 3 were by golf stick and 2 and 4 were by surgical instruments. Aarushi died due to lack of blood in the body,” he said in his examination-in-chief.
Deposing before the special court, Dr Sunil Kumar Dohre, deputy chief medical officer of Noida, said Aarushi’s viscera and the pieces of small intestine, liver and gall bladder too were preserved.
The CBI fielded Dohre, who was medical in-charge at the primary health centre at Sector 22 in Noida at the time of the murder, as a witness on Tuesday.
He told the court he was present at the time when Hemraj’s autopsy was conducted and saw that the victim’s throat had been slit and the “pattern of cutting it was same (as that of Aarushi) and the cuts were clean.”
“Hemraj was also murdered with the surgical tools,” he said adding that the nature of injuries on the bodies of Aarushi and Hemraj was same. He also said “the white discharge” on the vagina was not of Aarushi’s and “must have come from outside” implying there was manipulation after the death.
“The white discharge present in the vaginal cavity of Aarushi was not from her body. It appeared it had come from outside, hence, I prepared slides (of the white discharge for preserving it),” the doctor said, hinting at the manipulation with the victim’s body to mislead the probe.
