"The autopsy of the girls was done late at night. One of the lady doctors who did the autopsy was doing one for the first time. The findings of the autopsy are not proper-- it says 'suggestive of rape', a term which has no meaning in medical jurisprudence. This may give a new twist to the case," a senior CBI official told ET on Tuesday.
A medical board will be constituted for the purpose. "The bodies will be subjected to another autopsy, this time by an experienced panel of doctors from Delhi."
The officer also termed the case as "very suspicious" and confirmed that the angle of an "honour killing" by the family was also being pursued.
According to sources, the rape victims' family will soon go through lie detector test.
It is said that the fathers of the rape victims, another family member and a witness were brought to undergo polygraph test at Central Forensic Science Laboratory in CGO complex in the national capital.
The tests will reportedly be conducted till Wednesday for which the CBI has already taken the consent of the four persons.
CBI to exhume victims' bodies for another autopsy
The agency is presently probing all possible angles, including ‘honour killing', based on the preliminary findings. According to sources, the CBI has said that they are not doubting the claims made by the families of the victims but in order to develop a flawless case, the agency needs to test the veracity of their statements.
The bodies of the two girls were found hanging from a tree in Badaun village a day after they went missing on May 27. Their families alleged that the victims were gang-raped and then murdered.
