DADU: The body of Gul Sama, a nine-year-old girl who was allegedly stoned to death over a jirga verdict a fortnight ago, had fractured neck and face and deep injuries on nose, head and torso believed to be caused by heavy stones falling down on her, according to the medical board that exhumed the body on Wednesday.
The board led by Dr Qurban Ali Shah exhumed the body in the presence of judicial magistrate and civil judge of Johi, Agha Imran Pathan, at Lali Lak graveyard near Karo Kot mountains in Khirthar range, 30 kilometres from Wahi Pandhi town, after the girl’s father Ali Bux Rind pointed out the grave. He was specially brought by police under tight security.
The doctors examined the body under a tent set up close to the graveyard and took samples of the viscera for chemical examination under heavy police security.
Dr Shah, additional medical superintendent of Liaquat Medical University Hospital Hyderabad, told journalists that report on the body’s examination would be declared after results came of the chemical examination.
