Custody death: Rizwan had ‘multiple injuries’, says initial probe

According to initial post-mortem findings, Rizwan Asad Pandit, a school principal from Awantipora who died in police custody on Tuesday in Police Custody in Srinagar, may have died due to “multiple injuries” India Express reported.

The findings reveal that Rizwan died because of “extravasation of blood” the leakage of blood from a vessel into the surrounding tissues caused by multiple injuries.

“The blood loss in soft tissues due to multiple injuries was extensive internally, and this must have led to irreversible shock,” an official said. “There was no blunt injury or damage to the internal organs,” he said.
