Woman’s eyeballs missing from corpse after autopsy, Dy CM suspends CMO

Badaun, UP: Taking suo moto cognizance of the incident of women’s eyeballs missing after the post mortem, Dy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh suspended the CMO of Badaun and two doctors who had conducted the autopsy have been booked and send to jail.   The doctors have been charged with the sale of human organs and sent to jail after a court of chief judicial magistrate allowed their judicial custody. The police action has invited sharp criticism from PMA doctors’ association, which has questioned the doctors’ arrest when a magisterial inquiry is pending.

The district police are currently probing the puzzling case of missing eyes of a female body from the Badaun government medical college. Inspector in-charge of Civil Lines police station, Gaurav Bishnoi, said a newly married bride had committed suicide after a spat with her husband. The post-mortem was conducted and after which the body was sent to her family for cremation. The woman’s family spotted her missing eyes before the cremation and reported the matter to the police and district administration. A second post-mortem of the woman’s body was conducted by a panel of three doctors on the directions of District Magistrate Manoj Kumar after which an FIR was registered on the complaint of woman’s brother against accused doctors and pharmacist for the missing eyes.

“During initial investigation, the statements of two doctors, who conducted the first post-mortem, pharmacists and other mortuary staff involved in the post-mortem process, were recorded. Their statements suggested that the eyes of the woman were missing before the examination and the doctors spotted it but did not inform the family of the deceased to avoid any trouble. They handed over the body after packing it,” said the inspector. “Even in this case, the doctors would have informed it in the post-mortem report, but they did not follow the procedure and it makes a case of negligence,” he added.
