A provisional autopsy report prepared says Mistry suffered a head injury, which led to a haemorrhage (heavy bleeding), besides a severe chest injury. The report will be finalised once chemical analysis findings are in.
Their remains were brought to the state-run JJ Hospital from Kasa sub-district hospital in Palghar around midnight on Monday. Authorities confirmed that the autopsies were completed by 2.30am. “Their remains have been kept in the mortuary. The families have communicated that they will be collecting the bodies before final rites on Tuesday,” said the official communication.
While the hospital didn’t give any details on the autopsy findings, sources said a provisional report has been prepared. Mistry suffered a head injury, which led to a haemorrhage (heavy bleeding), besides a severe chest injury. “Both of them suffered from multiple trauma and had injuries in the head, chest and limbs. There were injuries to vital organs, which can cause instant death,” said a source.
“The injuries were telling of a forceful impact suffered by the body, likely due to a speeding car coming to an abrupt halt. When the car goes from 100 to zero, the body suffers a major jolt,” explained an expert.
JJ authorities said the viscera samples will be sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) in Kalina, adding that the autopsy report will be finalised once the chemical analysis findings are submitted by FSL.
