Thiruvananthapuram: Former police surgeon and head of Forensic Medicine Dr. P Radhakrishnan Friday told the Chief Judicial Magistrate court here that Sister Abhaya died due to drowning.
Dr. P Radhakrishnan said that the investigating team should find out whether the death of Abhaya was a suicide or a murder.
“Water will not enter the bowels if one is unconscious,” Dr. Radhakrishnan said.
“Nobody has examined the water found in her stomach and that of the well is the same. Her internal organs were sent for examination to know whether she was sexually assaulted,” he said.
Sister Abhaya, a Knanaya Roman Catholic nun, was found dead in the well of the Pius X Convent, Kottayam, on March 27, 1992.
