Don't cremate bodies of six woodcutters killed in Seshachalam forests till Friday : SC

CHENNAI: Bodies of six woodcutters, who were among the 20 killed by the Andhra Pradesh police and forest personnel in Seshachalam forests, will be kept in the mortuary of the government hospital in Tiruvannamalai till Friday morning, as Tamil Nadu government on Thursday told the Madras high court that it had no objection for conducting a re-postmortem. The court ordered the authorities not to cremate the bodies till Friday.

A submission to this effect was made by advocate-general of Tamil Nadu A L Somayaji on Thursday when a writ petition filed by Muniammal, wife of slain woodcutter Sasikumar, came up for hearing before Justice M Sathyanarayanan.

During arguments, the judge said that the court could not order re-postmortem in the absence of an FIR and that it could order registration of an FIR since the incident had occurred outside the court's jurisdiction. He, however, made it clear that the court would not stand in the way if the government takes a decision on the basis of the representation given by Muniammal to the authorities.

To this, Somayaji said government had no objection to perform re-postmortem and said whether it would serve any purpose was a matter to be considered. He told the court that he could furnish more details on Friday. The judge then directed the Government Hospital in Tiruvannamalai to keep all the six bodies in the mortuary awaiting further orders of the court.
