New Delhi/Bhopal  : Senior doctors who did post-mortem of Namrata Damore, an alleged beneficiary of MBBS admission through Vyapam, and police officials who investigated the case have come under the scanner of CBI for their contradictory reports and investigations.

CBI sources said the agency will soon call Dr B B Purohit who did the first post mortem on Damore, whose body was found on railway tracks at Bherupura crossing in Ujjain, suggesting her death was a result of “violent asphyxia as a result of smothering” suggesting murder.

The agency is now focusing on the contradictory report given by D S Barhkur, Director of medico-legal institute, Bhopal, who had rubbished the post-mortem report finalised by a three-doctor panel led by Purohit, a post-graduate in forensic medicine, the sources said. Barkhur suggested that Damore might have committed suicide and was alive before she jumped on the tracks to end her life. Barkhur’s findings were based on the visit to crime scene and snaps taken by him besides calculation of speed of train and place where the body was first found.

According to a PTI report, Barkhur’s findings were relied on by the police investigation team which closed the case saying it was a suicide. Now CBI has decided to call both the experts to know the reasons behind their findings besides verifying the findings again with the help of CFSL experts, the sources said. They said statements and reports given by both set of experts will be verified as there are lot of loopholes in the theories built around their reports.
