Asked why he didn't approach the police earlier, Alvi said: "The whole thing had become controversial and I was waiting for it to die down. But when I saw reports on TV with people claiming that the constable was not beaten, I decided to approach the police immediately and tell the truth."
Told that two other eyewitnesses, Yogendra and Paulene, had claimed that they had not seen any injury marks on Tomar, Alvi said they "arrived 10 minutes after I did".
On Wednesday, RML Hospital medical superintendent Dr T S Sidhu said there were no visible injury marks. But hours later, police read out excepts from Tomar's post-mortem report to underline that he had a heart attack following injuries to his neck and chest. There were also fractures in three ribs.
Police said they will verify Alvi's statement and put together the sequence of events.
