KARACHI: The exhumation request for the body of Dr Maha Shah has been rejected by the Mirpurkhas Sessions Court in a written judgement stating that permission was not taken from the concerned magistrate or trial court.
According to details, the exhumation request for the body of Dr Maha Shah was rejected by the court as the case was registered at the Gizri Police Station in Karachi and SSP South did not obtain permission from the concerned magistrate or trial court.
The Additional District and Sessions Judge South adjourned the hearing of the case till September 10th due to the lack of police file and the absence of the investigation officer as he was present in Mirpurkhas for the exhumation of the body according to the public prosecutor present at the court.
Moreover, the bail of the accused Junaid Khan has also been extended in the case of Dr Maha Shah while he says that these are false allegations being leveled against him by the deceased’s father Asif Ali Shah.
According to a report by Express News, Junaid Khan said that Dr Maha Shah did not commit suicide but was murdered stating that the deceased did not have a good relationship with her father who left her mother for a 20-year-old girl.
Junaid Khan said that her father forcibly took Dr Maha Shah to Mirpurkhas and later left her mother for a 20-year-old girl. However, the dispute between the two became worse after Asif Ali Shah sold a property which belonged to Dr Maha’s mother.
Furthermore, Junaid Khan stated that he met Dr Maha Shah in 2016 and both of them had been friends until her death and how she expressed her love in message sent to him on July 19th (his birthday).
Junaid Khan argued that if he had tortured Dr Maha Shah, why would she be sending him messages full of love further stating that he had visited her home to drop off chocolates on 18th August and there were armed men present while everyone was drunk.
According to Khan, he received a call one hour later from her brother saying that Dr Maha Shah had shot herself committing suicide. Junaid said he later reached the hospital and stood outside.
