Rifa Mehnu-Exhumation at Kozhikode

Kozhikode: The post-mortem procedures of vlogger Rifa Mehnu, who died under mysterious circumstances in Dubai, were completed at Kozhikode Medical College here on Saturday. The body was handed over to the family and reburied at a grave in Pavandoor Juma Masjid.

Rifa's remains were exhumed on Saturday morning in the presence of the sub-collector and other officials. The inquest procedures were completed in the presence of the Kozhikode Tehsildar. Following this, the body was taken for post-mortem at Kozhikode medical college.

Earlier, the officials had made special arrangements for conducting the autopsy on the premises of the graveyard itself. However, as the body was found in a proper form, the officials decided to conduct the autopsy at Kozhikode medical college.

Rifa Mehnu, 21, a Malayalee YouTuber and vlogger, was found dead at her flat in Dubai on March 1. The investigating officials of Dubai were not able to conclude the reason behind the alleged suicide of Rifa. The body, which was brought from Dubai, was buried here. Rifa’s family had alleged that her husband and his family members had deceived them by claiming the post-mortem was done in Dubai. They mentioned the same to Kerala Police too. The probe team sought the nod of the Revenue Divisional Officer (RDO) to exhume the body.
