Mumbai: The Mumbai Police have exhumed the body of 22-year-old Rameez Chougule, the younger of the two siblings who were found dead at their flat in Versova in July this year. Rameez and his elder sister Rehab allegedly died due to pesticide poisoning after pest control operations at their apartment. The police had then called it "accidental deaths", drawing much criticism from the media and the people. On Monday, the police exhumed Rameez's body from the Yari Road graveyard, where he was buried just hours after his death on July 3.
In the immediate aftermath of the discovery of the dead bodies, the family of the victims had called in a local homoeopath, who after tests, claimed that Rameez died of gastroentritis and Rehab died of phosphide poisoning caused by aluminium phosphate, traces of which were found in her stomach.
The key question before the police now is to find out whether the deaths were purely accidental or a case of homicide.
The police are hoping that the post mortem report of Rameez's body would reveal more details....more
