Mr.Prof. Dr. Owais Hameed is the Head of Anatomy Department of Sheikh Zayed Medical College Rahim Yar Khan.

Speaking to News Agancy he said that in a teaching hospital where medical education is also provided there are usually 2 types of mortuary 1 for the anatomy department and 1 for the forensic department. where an autopsy is performed.

It usually happens that when the Punjab police bring bodies for post mortem which cannot be identified after the post mortem these bodies are safely kept in these morgues.

If the police are able to locate the family members of the deceased body is handed over to them. But such bodies whose identity is not found and the relatives are not found are still present in the mortuary.

In response to a question He also said Legally 2 weeks are required for the identification of such bodies during which the police are obliged to try to reach the relatives through various means.

After this period these bodies can be used for educational purposes. However generally such unidentifiable bodies are kept for four weeks, during which the body is chemically preserved and placed in storage to prevent decomposition.

He also  says that whole process of handing over such dead bodies takes place in which it is written who handed over the dead body to us and other known information of the deceased etc.

We keep the body in safe condition for at least 3 to four months so that if any 1 is identified during this period it can be returned to the family with the help of the police.
