Staff Reporter :
The High Court (HC) on Thursday directed the Investigation Officers (IOs) of murder cases to submit the postmortem and inquest reports to the concerned Magistrates within 10 days of any murder incidents.
The court ordered the Health Secretary, Home Secretary, Directorate General of Health Services and Inspector General of Prisons to take necessary steps in this regard, Assistant Attorney General Md Yousuf Mahmud Morshed told the reporters.
The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order while hearing a bail petition filed by Shahidul Islam Fakir, an accused in a murder case filed with Morelganj Police Station in Bagerhat.
During the hearing, Thakur Das Mondol, Investigation Officer of the murder case, appeared before the HC bench as the court on May 6 summoned the IO for not complying with its order over producing the inquest and postmortem reports of the case to this court.
He told the court that he could not submit the inquest and postmortem report as he was busy with some other Investigation of urgent cases.
The court disposed of the bail petition and exonerated Thakur Das Mondol from personal appearance before the court.
The murder case was filed after one Shukkur Sheikh of Daibaggohati village under Morelganj Police Station in Bagerhat was shot dead on October 1 last year.
