Just a day after three sisters were found dead in the Mandawali area of east Delhi, the postmortem reports have shown that the reason behind the trio’s death was starvation as there stomach was absolutely empty.
Talking to agencies, Amita Saxena, MS, Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital, said, “There was no trace of fat on their bodies. Postmortem showed the stomach was absolutely empty. It’s a case of gross malnutrition”
Meanwhile, the police sources also mentioned that the three sisters died due to starvation.
The initial post-mortem examination report has indicated that the girls, aged two, four and eight died of starvation.
Reportedly, the police were initially treating it as the case of natural deaths, but the recovery of pills and medicine bottles prompted them to look into the poisoning angle.
The girls were brought to the hospital by a member of the family but were declared dead on arrival.
Pankaj Singh deputy commissioner of police (east) had earlier said, “A board of doctors conducted a re-examination at the GTB hospital. According to the initial autopsy report, the girls died due to starvation and its complications.”
“The Delhi government has ordered a magisterial probe into the matter,” Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia announced in a tweet.
