In the Uttarakhand Murder Case, victim Ankita Bhandari’s post-mortem report has been revealed. According to the report, Ankita died from asphyxia due to drowning. Furthermore, injuries were found on the body before death, suggestive of blunt force trauma.

NewsX spoke with Dr. Anil Arora, Gastroenterologist who further explained the post-mortem report. In a conversation with the channel, Dr. Arora said, “Any young person who is being thrown off a cliff will show resistance. The injuries suggest that before Ankita was forced into the barrage, she resisted.”

Furthermore, Dr. Arora explained that “Currently, it’s difficult to explain how deep the injuries were before she was thrown and how they affected the drowning.”

The post-mortem of her body was conducted at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Rishikesh on Saturday. Her body was then handed over to her family for cremation.

Ankita Bhandari, who worked as a receptionist at a resort in Pauri district in Uttarakhand, was reported missing a few days ago. Her body was recovered on September 24.

The death of 19-year-old Ankita Bhandari has sparked outrage across the nation. The U’khand BJP government reacting to the incident has taken action against the party leader Vinod Arya after his son was arrested in connection with the case.

Her body was recovered on Saturday from Chilla canal where the accused had allegedly dumped her.

The accused arrested in the case-Pulkit Arya, resort manager Saurabh Bhaskar, and assistant manager Ankit Gupta- had confessed to killing the girl and throwing her body into the canal. They were sent to 14-day judicial custody by a court on Friday.
