MOSCOW, November 15 (Itar-Tass) — Experts involved in the investigation into the causes of the death of student Ivan Agafonov, who died several days after he received a blow from professional martial arts fighter Rasul Mirzayev, have not found any evidence of guilt of the medical personnel for the student's death.
Thus, the experts have turned down a version suggested by the defendant's lawyers who claimed that Ivan Agafonov might have died because of improper medical assistance.
The experts neither established a direct link between a blow Rasul Mirzayev dealt to student Ivan Agafonov and Ivan Agafonov's death.
As a result of the blow Mirzayev dealt to the victim Ivan Agafonov received injuries of the flesh only, which are considered as an an injury causing no harm to health, judge Andrei Fedin declared at the Moscow Zamoskvoretsky District court on Thursday as he read out the experts' conclusion.
All the injuries qualified as causing severe harm to health were inflicted when the victim fell from his full height, hitting his head against a hard road surface, the experts said in the conclusion. It was specified that the victim received no injuries, which might have been qualified as causing harm to health, at the moment when Mirzayev dealt a blow to the victim in the face and until the moment when the victim struck a hard road surface as he fell.
Nevertheless, the experts ruled that Mirzayev's blow might have caused the victim's accelerated fall from a standing position downwards. But the experts could not estimate the force of the blow and its potential; neither they established if Mirzayev used any of his special skills as a professional martial arts fighter.
Four previous expert examinations neither confirmed a lin between Mirzayev's blow and Agafonov’s death.
Rasul Mirzayev, a professional martial arts fighter, is standing trial on charges of causing intentional harm to health of his victim who died several days after the incident which occurred on August 15, 2011 after a spontaneous quarrel between Mirzayev and the student outside a night club at around 4.00 am.
It was pointed out in the investigation files that Mirzayev used his skills as a professional fighter and sportsman and intentionally dealt a blow to the victim. The victim fell, hitting his head against a hard asphalt surface , fell into coma and died in hospital three days after the incident.
