Israel's Foreign Ministry and the Zaka organization appealed on Thursday to the Indian authorities to stop the autopsy of the body of a young Israeli man. Indian officials sought to perform the post-mortem examination in order to ascertain the cause of the man's death.
The man's body was recovered from a river on Wednesday night after he had been missing for several days.
Zaka was attempting on Thursday to put the forensic team at the Indian hospital in communication with Israel's Institute of Forensic Medicine at Abu Kabir in the hopes that an expert opinion could dissuade Indian authorities from performing the autopsy.
