Despite allegations of police negligence in the investigation into the gang-rape and murder of an Anganwari worker in a village under Ughaiti police station in Badaun, the health department did not take video of the woman’s autopsy.

Asked about this, Dr Yashpal Singh, Chief Medical Officer of Badnaun, said, “The administration has not given any instructions for videography, so no video of the autopsy has been taken.” “If the administration had instructed him, he would have done post-mortem videography.” A panel of three doctors comprising the chief medical officer examined the woman’s body.

Experts say that in cases of rape or other suspected cases of women, the panel videographs the autopsy, so that experts can comment on the videography of the autopsy if necessary. Rajiv Kumar Sharma, senior advocate in criminal cases, said, “After the Nirvar incident in Delhi, the Supreme Court issued guidelines to the central government on medical examination or post-mortem examination, stating that in such cases the medical examination of the victim / deceased will be conducted by a panel of three doctors.” It is compulsory to stay and videography of the entire autopsy will also be done compulsorily.
