Autopsy suggests drowning caused Jihad death in well

With the completion of the autopsy on Jihad’s body on Sunday morning, the autopsy conductors at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) morgue came up with the suggestion that the four-year-old boy died from drowning.
The autopsy was completed by a three-member team of the Forensic Department of DMCH, led by its chair Prof Dr Habibuzzaman, around 9:45am and the body of Jihad was handed over to the boy’s maternal uncle Monir Hossain at 10:30am.
Prof Habibuzzaman said, “The child died due to drowning in the water. Though, there were marks of a minor injury in the back of the head.”Jihad’s uncle Monir Hossain told UNB over phone that Jihad’s body is being taken to his ancestral home at Goshairhat upazila in Shariatpur district.
Nearly 23 hours after four-year-old boy Jihad slipped into a deep pipe of an abandoned railway pump at Shahjahanpur Railway Colony, private rescuers retrieved his body after their hectic efforts on Saturday afternoon.
Assistant Director of Fire Service Headquarters Rafiqul Islam said the boy was rescued around 3pm and then sent to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
Minutes after he was rushed to the DMCH, doctors said that the boy was brought dead. His body has been kept at the hospital for autopsy which is scheduled to be held on Sunday morning.
Local rescuers retrieved Jihad’s body shortly after Fire Service had postponed their rescue operation having failed to trace the boy in the pipe with a sophisticated camera.
Local people and some mechanics made an iron catcher and pulled out Jihad’s body from the bottom of the pipe with it. – UNB
