THE PRELIMINARY post-mortem examination report of Seema Goyal, 60, suggests that she was strangulated, and also received a blunt injury at the back of her head, said a senior police officer in-charge of the investigation in the matter. “The preliminary report also suggests struggles on the part of the victim woman as bruises were found on her body. She might have tried to counter the assailant(s),” said the officer. A special panel of doctors conducted the post-mortem of the victim’s body at GMSH-16 on Friday. The preliminary report was shared with the investigation agency on Saturday.
Police said that the conclusive report of the post-mortem examination will come after a fortnight. Sources said, “Apparently, the woman was being strangled when her head was hit at a solid surface, leading to injuries on the back of her head. Doctors have not found any other injury marks on the body.”
Seema Goyal, wife of Panjab University Professor Bharat Bhushan Goyal, better known as Professor BB Goyal, was found dead with her hands and feet tied, and a piece of cloth shoved in her mouth at her residence on PU campus on Thursday.

The victim was rushed to GMSH-16, where doctors had declared her brought dead.
