BHUBANESWAR/RAYAGADA: The Mystery Around Critic Putin Pavel AntovOdisha’s death deepens the following Wednesday forensic expert inside Health service Dept the legislator said viscera was not preserved prior to cremation and police did not request a sample.
“Organ samples are certainly desirable to us, although autopsy reports and organs are not the only thing to rely on in the investigation. Two separate cases of unnatural deaths have been recorded,” said a state crime police officer.
The Odisha government has ordered a criminal branch investigation into the deaths of Russian businessman and lawmaker Antov, 65, and his friend Vladimir Bydanov, 61 years old, a few days apart in the town of Rayagada, southern Odisha. Sausage tycoon Antov fell to his death from the third floor of his hotel last Saturday, two days after Bydanov died of a heart attack in the same hotel.
