Ranchi: Days af­ter Jhark­hand po­lice scaled down the charge against 13 ac­cused in the Tabrez An­sari lynch­ing case from mur­der to cul­pa­ble homi­cide not amount­ing to mur­der, the head of the panel of doc­tors which an­a­lysed the victim’s post-mortem re­port and sub­mit­ted its find­ings to state govern­ment told TOI that he suf­fered a car­diac ar­rest due to “thrash­ing, loss of blood and internal bleeding”.

Tabrez (22) was tar­geted by a mob on June 17 af­ter he was sus­pected of be­ing in­volved in a mo­tor­bike theft. In a vi­ral video, the mob is seen hit­ting him re­peat­edly and ask­ing him to chant “Jai Shri Ram”. Seraikela

Khar­sawan district SP Karthik S had said on Tues­day that po­lice con­verted the mur­der charge into cul­pa­ble homi­cide not amount­ing to mur­der as the au­topsy had con­cluded that Tabrez died of car­diac ar­rest.

How­ever, Dr Lalan Choud­hary, head of the five-mem­ber med­i­cal com­mit­tee at MGM Hos­pi­tal, Jamshed­pur, which had sub­mit­ted its re­port, em­pha­sised that it was ex­ces­sive bleeding due to in­jury that led to the car­diac ar­rest. “Our role is lim­ited to es­tab­lish­ing the fact that the car­diac ar­rest has a rea­son and, in this case, ex­ces­sive bleeding due to in­jury re­sulted in car­diac ar­rest,” he told TOI.

The panel had said in its find­ings sub­mit­ted on Au­gust 10: “We ob­serve that there is a frac­ture on the right side of the fronto-per­i­tal bone of the skull, there is a sub-arch­noid hem­or­rhage (2-3mm) on right side fronto-per­i­tal re­gion of brain. All or­gans are pale, all cham­bers of the heart are filled with blood, no poi­son is found in FSL re­port.” “On the ba­sis of main find­ings, we opine that the frac­ture of bone is a griev­ous in­jury caused by a hard and blunt ob­ject. The com­bined ef­fect of the frac­ture of bone, pale or­gans and heart cham­bers (that were) full of blood re­sulted in a car­diac ar­rest,” it had said.
