(In a medico legal autopsy, the dead body is in the custody of the Investigating Officer till the post-mortem examination, and not the relatives or Medical Superintendent of the hospital, hence it should be handed over to the I.O. after the post-mortem examination is complete. The I.O. then hands over the body to the relatives.)
