New Delhi: The post-mortem report of Delhi Police constable Subhash Chand Tomar was released on Wednesday and Delhi Police claimed that the cardiac arrest was precipitated by injuries to his neck and chest.
The Delhi Police in a press conference addressed by KC Dwivedi, Additional Commissioner of the Delhi Police, said that doctors have described the cause of death as "Myocardial infarction and its complications. That could be precipitated by multiple ante-mortem injuries to neck and chest produced by blunt force impact."
Police said that he suffered serious ante-mortem injuries and his three ribs were fractured on the left side. Effusion of blood was present in tissues and neck muscles.
Ante-mortem injuries are caused when the body suffers heavy blows from a blunt object.
Dwivedi said, "Constable Subhash Tomar suffered serious injuries. Autopsy reveals internal bleeding and broken ribs."
Dwivedi added, "Injuries suffered on chest and neck were due to blunt objects which led to constable Subhash Tomar's death. It seems that Tomar was attacked with a blunt object on his chest, which led to cardiac arrest."
