Mystery still surrounds youth's death who was killed in Haryana's Nuh district in cross firing between police and villagers
The post-mortem of Sahib Khan, the 23-year-old, who was allegedly shot dead in Nuh district's Patakpur village on Tuesday last during a joint raid by police teams from Uttarakhand and Haryana, has confirmed that he had died due to shock and haemorrhage as a result of firearm injury. The police had conducted a joint raid to arrest a criminal from the village.

The post-mortem was conducted at Pt BD Sharma Health University in Rohtak today. 

Highly placed sources told "Gustakhi Maaf Haryana" that one bullet was recovered from the deceased’s body during the post-mortem conducted by a team of forensic experts including Dr Kuldeep, Dr Sandeep Giri and Sunil Dahiya. 

The bullet has been sent to FSL, Madhuban to find whether bullet was fired from a country made gun, revolver, pistol or some other weapon used by the police.  

The police have been maintaining that Khan had died after a stray bullet hit him during exchange of fire between the police team and the criminals. However, the deceased’s family has alleged that he was killed by cops. The police have registered two FIRs at Punhana police station naming 41 villagers for attacking the police officials who had gone to arrest a robbery accused from the village. However, arrests are yet to be made in both the cases. 

In the meanwhile, the Khan’s family had refused to perform the last rites demanding that his autopsy should be conducted by a panel of doctors in Delhi and should be videographed. They had even approached the DC, Nuh saying that they didn’t trust the autopsy conducted either by Civil Hospital Nuh or Mewat Medical College. 

After the issue took political colour, the state government decided to get the autopsy done at Pt BD Sharma Health University in Rohtak. The post-mortem was also videographed. According to sources, a Congress MP, who spoke to the concerned authorities about conducting the post-mortem in a transparent manner, was politely told that he should not question the credibility of the forensic department.
