In order to widen the scope of the investigation and gather information related to the case, the police officials have written to Facebook to share the data of her account with the investigative team. It must be mentioned that no official statement has been made so far in this regard.

Autopsy report reveals that Puja Bharti died of drowning

The autopsy, conducted under the supervision of a three-member medical board, has confirmed that Puja died due to drowning. During the post-mortem, the doctors did not find injury marks on her body or private parts. The police have sent the victim’s undergarments, vaginal swab, nail clippers, ropes and other items to the State Forensic Science Laboratory (SFL) to probe the angle of rape, as per a report in Jagran.

As per the CCTV footages and police investigation so far, Puja left her home in a normal condition and did not return even after 6 pm on Tuesday, when the main gate is closed. She had boarded an AC bus from Hazaribagh and arrived in Ranchi, although the bus driver failed to identify the exact location where he dropped her. The victim’s body was recovered from the dam, with her hands and legs tied up.

Reportedly, the victim had a second phone, which has been missing ever since the incident. The investigating team is of the view that the phone would help solve the mystery in the case. As such, the cops are scanning the ‘call drop’ records in the area, where Puja was found dead. The case is being investigated by 17 teams from 3 districts, namely, Hazaribagh, Ranchi and Ramgarh.The Patratu police station has lodged a case of murder against unidentified people.
