Post-mortem report says Russian MP died of internal injury due to fall: Police


The post-mortem report of Russian MP and businessman Pavel Antov indicates that he died of internal injury after a fall while his fellow traveller Vladimir Bidenov’s death was due to a heart attack, police said on Wednesday.

Dr Lalmohan Routrai, Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO) of Rayagada told PTI that the post-mortem of Vladimir Bidenov, 61, was conducted at the District Headquarters Hospital on December, 24 and of Pavel Antov, 65, on December 26. The viscera of Bidenov has been preserved while that of Antov has not been preserved, the CDMO said.

Routrai said the post mortem reports have already been submitted to police. The viscera will be sent to forensic laboratory in Bhubaneswar.

The post-mortem report of Pavel stated that “he sustained a severe internal injury after falling from the third floor of the hotel,” police said, adding that the post-mortem report of Bidenov stated that “he died of a heart attack”.

Antov, a sausage tycoon-turned politician who had last June reportedly posted an anti-Ukraine war message on social media only to withdraw it later blaming the outburst on “technical error”, had reportedly come to Rayagada along with Bidenov and two other friends on tourist visa to celebrate his 66th birthday, a police officer said.

Meanwhile, the other two co-travellers, Pansasenko Natalia (44) and Turov Mikhail (64) along with the tour guide arrived at the Crime Branch headquarters in Cuttack for questioning. Both of them have been asked not to leave the state.

All of them were questioned at the Bhubaneswar Crime Branch office on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
