Bizman’s death: Autopsy shows deep injuries, blood clots

LUCKNOW: Kanpur businessman Manish Gupta’s body bore abrasions and contusions on the forehead, lacerations on his right hand and blood clots on the eye, as per the autopsy report accessed by TOI. The cause of death was attributed to ante-mortem injuries.
Police said, injuries were caused by a fall towards the right, triggering a swelling on the forehead. Gorakhpur police said, they will rope in forensic experts to establish the sequence of events that led to the businessman’s death.
A court-qualified forensic expert and graphologist, Anurag Srivastava, with whom TOI shared the autopsy report, said injuries on the elbow seem to have been caused by a blow from a blunt object.
“When the body is at rest, it cannot generate such force,” said Srivastava.
“Hematoma was also detected on forehead along with swelling, which again points to external force,” he said.On September 28, a friend who shared the room with the Kanpur businessman, alleged police had brutally thrashed Gupta, before he was repeatedly slapped and whisked away from the room. He said, police began assaulting them when they questioned the reason for waking them up in the middle of the night. Police, however, claim that a sozzled Gupta slipped and fell, causing injuries which proved fatal. He died during treatment at a local hospital, they added.
A police official disclosed that during a routine verification drive, police got suspicious when they found the trio of Manish Gupta, Pradeep Chauhan and Hardeep Singh Chauhan of Gurugram had checked in at a hotel room on Monday morning after submitting a single identity card at the reception.
