Bhubaneswar, January 12, 2018: The post-mortem report of Shreyas Kesharwani, the 16-year-old boy, who was allegedly brutally tortured inside the premises of Sri Chaitanya Institute at Marikavalasa in Vishakhapatnam by other students, has revealed that contusion in heart, pulmonary effusion and pulmonary embolism (blood clot inside lungs) was the cause of his death.

Officials from the Pothinamallayya Palem (OM) police station led by its Inspector in-charge K Lakshmana Murthy on Friday collected the post-mortem report of the victim from the Capital Hospital authorities here.

The team led by PM Palem police station IIC Murthy arrived in Bhubaneswar on Thursday to probe the death of Shreyas of Garposh in Sambalpur district.

The team also visited the private hospital in Bhubaneswar where the student succumbed to his injuries, where he was admitted after being subjected to ragging at the hostel of Sri Chaitanya Institute. His death had sparked tension with people of Garposh observing a bandh on January 7. Shreyas died on January 6.

After a public outrage in Sambalpur, a case was registered at Govindpur police station.

On Wednesday, Odisha Police formally handed over the FIR copy to PM Palem police in Vishakhapatnam to take up the investigation.

Initially, he was admitted to the IGH Hospital in Rourkela and was later shifted to a private hospital in Bhubaneswar as his condition deteriorated.

But he succumbed to injuries on January 6 while undergoing treatment.
