Regulation of Guidelines in Postmortem Examination in India

The need for a detailed, organized procedure for performing autopsy is important, especially in India, since cremation of the deceased bodies is a popular ritual amongst many populations in the country. This means that much of the evidence can be obliterated and the possibility of exhumation for re-testing is annulled. Sadly, the procedure for autopsy remains different and unclear among experts from different States and there aren’t many checks and balances with that respect. The study investigates whether the absence of unanimous standards with regard to post mortem examination may adversely affect the evidences, hence affecting the trial outcome.
