The first autopsy report of Sohagi Jahan Tonu had confusing and wrong information, while the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) found rape evidence on the body of the Comilla Victoria College student Tonu in its DNA test.
And this is why, the investigation process took much time, said industries minister Amir Hossain Amu to newsmen after a meeting of cabinet committee on law and order in the Secretariat on Sunday.
The CID report found profile of three men’s semen in the dresses and underwear of Tonu in the DNA test conducted at the CID Dhaka laboratory.
On 4 April, physicians at the Forensic Department of Comilla Medical College Hospital in their first autopsy report did not find any sign of rape before the death of the college girl.
Earlier, on 28 March, a local court ordered the exhumation of Tonu’s body for fresh autopsy.
The court order follows ‘discrepancies’ in the investigation agencies’ primary findings and what has been gleaned from her original autopsy.
A fresh post-mortem was conducted on the body of the college girl at the Comilla Medical College Hospital on 30 March after the body was exhumed on the day.
Members of Crime Scene Unit of CID brought the DNA and other samples of teeth, nails and body to Dhaka for examination.
Physician Prosad conducted the second autopsy along with Omar Faruk and Sharmin Sultana of the hospital.
Sohagi Jahan Tonu, second year student of History Department of Comilla Victoria College and member of Victoria College Theatre, was found dead in a bush inside the Comilla Cantonment area on 20 March.
