Islamabad: Nimrita Chandni who was found dead on a cot by her friends on September 16, was raped and murdered, the final postmortem report has revealed.
The Pakistani Hindu dental college student was seen lying dead under mysterious circumstances in her hostel room in Sindh province.
Her final postmortem report, which was issued by Chandka Medical College Hospital (CMCH) Woman Medico-Legal Officer (WMLO) Dr Amrita on Wednesday, revealed that the girl was sexually abused before being murdered, the News International reported on Thursday.
According to the autopsy report, her death was caused by suffocation. Asphyxial signs caused by a ligature on the neck were seen during the autopsy.
