Later the local police took the body into their possession, after which it was taken to the Civil Hospital in Derabassi where a post-mortem will take place on Saturday. The deceased, Jasjot Kaur, had been identified as Colonel Amarjeet Singh Chandok ‘s wife (retd).

Jasjot ‘s family said she was admitted to the Derabassi Indus Hospital where she died Thursday as a result of cardiac arrest.

The daughter of the deceased, Chamanpreet Kaur, said she changed her clothes after her mother died, and the body was moved to the hospital’s mortuary. “I found blood stains on my mother’s face and ears as I arrived to take her body.

When I asked the hospital staff about it, they did not give any satisfactory reply following which I informed my father. We examined the body, and found it had been eaten up at the ears and the face,” she alleged.

The Managing Director of Indus Hospital, Dr Surinder Singh Bedi, said they will conduct proper inquiry into the incident and take action.
