MOSCOW, October 11 (Itar-Tass) —— A criminal case has been opened over a conscript suicide in the Saratov region, a source at the Main Military Investigation Department of the Russian Investigation Committee told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
Private Vadim Dolgopolov was admitted to a military hospital with the tonsillitis diagnosis on September 24. He was discharged on October 3 and taken back to the hospital soon with health complaints.
A thorough checkup revealed that the conscript was in good health. An officer from his military unit came to the hospital to take him to the barracks. Dolgopolov jumped out of the hospital’s third floor window and died of injuries.
Military detectives opened a criminal case on the driving to suicide charges.
“No evidence of fighting was found on the incident scene. Fellow servicemen and the military unit’s command were questioned. Detectives are evaluating military discipline in the military unit and collecting information about friends and the family of the serviceman drafted for military service from the Saratov region,” the source said.
