JAIPUR: The body of a doctor was discovered inside his car in Jaipur on Monday afternoon. Some people broke the car’s glass to retrieve the deceased.

A police team from Shivdaspura police station, with assistance from the FSL team, collected evidence from the spot.

Investigators found burn marks on the doctor’s body. After conducting a postmortem examination on Tuesday morning, the police handed over the body to the bereaved family. The police preliminarily believe that the doctor succumbed to a heart attack.

The Station House Officer (SHO) of Shivdaspura, Omprakash Matwa, shared, “The deceased, Dr. Naresh Kumar Sharma (43), originally hailed from Bamanwas, Sawai Madhopur.

His family resides in Vatika, Shivdaspura, Jaipur. He served as an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialist at the Government District Hospital in Lalsot. Since January 2021, he had been living in a rented house in Lalsot New Colony while fulfilling his duties at the hospital. After completing his shift on Saturday night, he traveled to Jaipur on Sunday to spend his day off. On Monday morning around 10 am, he left for some errands using a car.”

Around 2:30 pm, bystanders noticed Dr. Naresh lying unconscious inside the parked car. Disturbed by the situation, they promptly informed the doctor’s relatives, who rushed to the scene. The car’s windows were tightly shut from the inside, leaving Dr. Naresh unconscious in the passenger seat.

To rescue him, the family members resorted to breaking the rear window of the vehicle and tending to him. After successfully unlocking the car, they extricated Dr. Naresh and promptly transported him to a nearby private hospital. The doctors at the hospital declared him dead upon arrival.

A police officer stated, “We have collected evidence with the help of the City FSL team. The postmortem examination was also conducted at Mahatma Gandhi Hospital before the body was handed over to the grieving family.”

Based on initial investigations, it appears that Dr. Naresh passed away due to a heart attack. His body remained inside the car for approximately one and a half hours. The extreme heat within the sealed car, left parked under the scorching sun, caused the body to decompose. When attempts were made to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at the hospital, burn marks were noticed on the skin upon lifting it,” said the officer.
