The aggrieved family of late businessman Dinesh Schaffter today informed the 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 the court that the initial postmortem report had suggested that Schaffter’s death was due to strangulation, but the 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 the facts into consideration, 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.
