NEW DELHI: The All India Institute Of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has formed a team of three forensic doctors to conduct the second autopsy on the bodies of four men accused of gang-rape and murder of a woman veterinarian near Hyderabad, who were killed in an alleged encounter in the early hours of December 6th.

The team will conduct the second autopsy in the mortuary of the state-run Gandhi Hospital in Hyderabad on Dec 23 at 9am, an AIIMS communique to Telangana special chief secretary stated. "The medical board will depart for Telangana on Dec 22 at 5.15 pm and will be coming back on Dec 23," a source said.

The Telangana High Court had directed authorities to conduct a second post-mortem on the bodies of the four accused. The bodies have been kept at Gandhi Hospital as per an earlier order of the high court, after pleas were filed alleging extra-judicial killing of the men and claiming it was a fake encounter.

The doctors were advised to express an independent view on the basis of the evidence collected by them.

It may be recollected that the four accused were arrested on Nov 29 for allegedly raping and killing the woman veterinarian and burning her body. The case triggered widespread protests across the country.

On Dec 6, they were gunned down by police at Chattanpalli when they were taken to the site of the offence for reconstruction of the crime scene for investigation. The "encounter" has come under legal scrutiny.

The first post mortem was conducted on Dec 6, the day the four men were killed, in a state-run hospital in Mahabubnagar from where the bodies were subsequently shifted to Gandhi Hospital. (PTI)
