The death case of constable Subash Tomar took a new turn with a new witness made fresh claims contrary to what two witnesses have made earlier.
Salim Alvi, a resident of Bulandshahar in Uttar Pradesh, in his statement given to Delhi Crime Branch, claimed that Tomar was hit by a stone following which he fell down. He also claimed that six-seven people had attacked him.
Tomar collapsed during the anti-rape protest at India Gate on Sunday and died of cardiac arrest early on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party has raised suspicion over Alvi’s credibility. Two other witnesses in the case-- Yogendra and Paoline-- had claimed that the policeman collapsed while chasing the crowd and that he was not beaten by the protesters.
T S Sidhu, medical superintendent of RML Hospital where Tomar was admitted, said that Tomar had no pulse when he was brought to the hospital.
“He had no major external injury marks except for some cuts and bruises,” he said. He also said there were no severe internal injuries in hospital records, but the postmortem report would reveal everything.
