An autopsy of writer and blogger Mushtaq Ahmed has been completed and doctors say there weren't any apparent signs of injuries on his body, according to the forensics department of Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmad Medical College Hospital in Gazipur.

While waiting at the hospital morgue, Mushtaq’s brother Dr Nafisur Rahman also told reporters that when he saw Mushtaq’s body, he did not notice anything unusual. “An autopsy has been conducted. I cannot say anything without the report. We have no complaints. We will not file a case.”

Writer Mushtaq Ahmed, who had been locked up under the controversial Digital Security Act for over nine months, was in the Kashimpur High-Security Jail 3 in Gazipur.

On Thursday night, he was taken to the jail hospital as he suddenly fell ill inside his cell. Later, when he was shifted to Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmad Medical College Hospital, on-duty doctors declared him dead at 8:20pm.

On May 6 last year, Rapid Action Battalion arrested him at his Dhaka home for "spreading rumours and carrying out anti-government activities".

The charges were filed under the DSA and he had been in that prison since August 20.
