Two Russian tourists’ deaths have puzzled Odisha cops. A multi-millionaire, who was on a vacation at Rayagada region in Odisha, allegedly died after falling off the third floor of the hotel he was staying in.

The deceased, Pavel Antov, was in Odisha to celebrate his 65th birthday. Pavel was found dead on Sunday, December 25. This is the second death of Russian lawmakers within a week in the same Odisha hotel.

Vivekananda Sharma, superintendent of police, who is investigating Antov’s death, said the body was cremated on Monday with the permission from his family, the officials said.

Four Russian tourists, including Vladimir and Antov, had checked into the hotel on December 21 after visiting Daringbadi in the Kandhamal district.

“Four people came to stay in a hotel in Rayagada on December 21. On December 22 morning, one of them (B Vladimir) died. After post-mortem, it was found that he suffered a heart stroke, died and was cremated. His friend, (Pavel Antonov) was depressed after his death and he too died on Dec 25,” the SP said.

Meanwhile, Jitendra Singh, a Russian tourist guide, in an exclusive interview told ANI that the four had come to stay in Rayagada hotel. “One of them was a 61-yr-old man, B Vladimir, who was ill. The next morning, when we came to his room, he was found dead. We had then called the police.”
