The body of student activist Anis Khan was exhumed on Monday (February 28) in the presence of the district judge in Howrah’s Amta for a second post-mortem examination.

Khan’s family alleged that he was thrown off the terrace of their house by men in police uniform on February 18.

Initially reluctant for a second autopsy of Khan, his family ultimately gave consent for it after Calcutta High Court gave its nod for the second post-mortem examination in the presence of a magistrate.

Members of the Special Investigation Team, formed to probe Khan’s death, along with his family members were present during the exhumation of the body.

Khan’s father was earlier opposed to the SIT probe and had sought a CBI investigation. He later agreed after the high court put its seal on the SIT investigation.
