Russian businessman linked to Kremlin critic dies in London under unexplained circumstances

Nikolai Glushkov a Russian exile and former associate of the late oligarch Boris Berezovsky has reportedly been found dead at his home in London

Another Russian exile living in London was found dead late Monday night, just a little more than a week since a former Kremlin spy and his daughter were poisoned.

The Metropolitan Police said its specialist unit was looking into it "as a precaution because of associations that the man is believed to have had".

Glushkov said: "You have the deaths of Boris and Badri over a short period of time".

Andrei Borovkov told Russian media outlets on March 13 that his client, Nikolai Glushkov, has died, but said he was unaware of the time and circumstances.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the incident was "deeply distressing" and asked CRPF Director General R.R. Bhatnagar to rush to Chhattisgarh . "To those who have been injured, I wish a speedy recovery", he added.

Police were quick to suggest there is now no evidence to link the death to events in Salisbury, where the former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with a weapons-grade nerve agent that was only ever produced in Russian Federation.

Police officers man a cordon near where Sergei Skripal was poisoned along with his daughter.

According to a statement, "police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 22:46hrs on Monday, March 12, to reports of a man found deceased at a residential address in Clarence Avenue, New Malden".

The Met said officers believe they know who the man is, but he is yet to be formally identified. Police said he committed suicide but Glushkov told The Guardian in 2013 that he suspected foul play.

Glushkov had worked for Russian airline Aeroflot and at Berezovksy's LogoVAZ vehicle company.

He was arrested in 1999 and put on trial for embezzling US$7 million from Aeroflot. He spent five years in jail and was freed in 2004.

Reports in British and Russian media say Glushkov, who was 68, was found dead at his home in southwest London.

Berezovsky was found dead in March 2013 with a scarf tied around his neck in the bathroom of a luxury mansion in Ascot, an affluent English town near the Queen's Windsor Castle, west of London.
