Dinesh Schaffter murder : Aggrieved party says contradictions in postmortem report



The aggrieved party of late businessman Dinesh Schaffter today informed court that they have noticed several contradictions and inconsistencies in the postmortem report compiled by the Colombo Judicial Medical Officer.

President’s Counsel Anuja Premaratne appearing for the aggrieved party told court the initial postmortem report had suggested that death was due to strangulation but final postmortem report submitted to the court has concluded that Schaffter’s death was due to cyanide poisoning, contradictory to the initial report.

Meanwhile, taking into the consideration the facts, Colombo Additional Magistrate Rajindra Jayasuriya announced that the verdict of the inquest into the death of businessman Dinesh Schaffter would be delivered on March 8.
