    Post mortem should be a legal requirement no matter what the circumstances of death. Our laws have certain loopholes that allow the strong to change the natural course of justice. In this case the police are putting pressure on the victims family to not lodge and FIR and not to proceed with the investigation. If our laws were such that no matter what the settlement a full investigation should be carried out then the Police and other powerful people would find it difficult to usurp the rights of the poor.Recommend
