Subhash Tomar

The Delhi Police constable, who died yesterday, had no "major external injury" except for some cuts and bruises when he was brought to a hospital in a state of "total collapse" on Sunday, doctors said on Wednesday.

Delhi Police has been maintaining that constable Subhash Tomar was injured by protesters near India Gate on Sunday when the protests against the gangrape of a young girl turned violent.

"He came in a state of total collapse and our doctors revived him and as he was not stable, we shifted him to the Intensive Care Unit. He was on ventilator," Dr T S Sidhu, Medical Superintendent of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, said.

He said there was no "major external injury marks except for some cuts and bruises".

Asked whether is it was a case of cardiac arrest, the doctor evaded a direct reply.

"I don't know. That is not my comment. He came, he was in serious shock and we revived him. In all our records, there are no severe internal injuries recorded but the post-mortem will tell everything," he said.

Yesterday, Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar had said Tomar had suffered internal injuries on his neck, chest and stomach and that they were waiting for the post mortem report to ascertain the exact cause of his death. Tomar died yesterday morning.
