Furious dad 'made paedo pal who abused his daughter, 6, dig his own grave then stabbed him to death and buried him'

A DEVASTATED dad forced the paedophile who abused his six-year-old daughter to dig his own grave before knifing him to death, it is alleged.

The father allegedly flew into a rage after finding graphic mobile phone video of his best pal Oleg Sviridov making the child perform sex acts.

The harrowing footage shows the youngster wailing "I want to go home”, sources said.

Her dad is said to have pummelled Sviridov – his trusted long-term friend – after finding the video by chance.

Parents discovered the paedo had also abused two other girls in the village, aged five and eight, in southern Russia's Samara region.

They delivered an ultimatum: hand himself into police and confess by 8pm, or take his own life.

But later the same evening the dad led his pal into a nearby forest carrying a shovel, his wife said.

Our exclusive video shows the shallow pit where car mechanic Sviridov, 32, was buried after a blade was plunged into his heart.

Police arrested the dad on suspicion of murder as he is alleged to have stabbed his former best friend to death.

However, the dad, 34, admits a knife fight at the makeshift forest grave but has told investigators Sviridov accidentally fell on the weapon, killing himself. 

He is now under house arrest pending a murder investigation, facing up to 15 years in jail if found guilty.

Villagers are backing him for “saving our children by ridding us of a child sex attacker”, and have crowdfunded cash for a lawyer.

Some 2,500 locals signed a petition supporting him. 

He is banned by cops from speaking, but his wife told The Sun Online they never suspected Sviridov was abusing their daughter while babysitting.

She said she came home from work on August 25 to find the two pals fighting in the bathroom before the beaten and bruised Sviridov fled the house.

She said: “[He] was hysterical, shellshocked. I had never seen him like that. 

“It took him a long time to come to his senses to explain to me.

“With his trembling hands, he took out Oleg’s phone and showed me a video.

“You cannot imagine what I experienced when I saw it. I felt sick, I was dizzy, and nauseous.

“I shook all over. I could not believe my eyes that it was our child in the video.

“Then my husband started crying. He kept repeating: 'He is my best friend, I trusted him with our children, I trusted him as myself’. 

"He could not believe in a million years that Oleg could do that.”


The next day they went to confront him along with the mother of another child victim.

The other mum said she leaped on Sviridov and tried to strangle him, but the dad pulled her off.

She told The Sun Online: “I wanted to hear remorse from Oleg but he said only: 'I don't know how I did it.'

“He himself understood that he either had to take his own life – or go to police.

“He said: ‘Let me say goodbye to my mother for a few hours – then I'm all yours’.”

Sviridov's aunt Nadezhda Sviridova met him after the beating, saying: “His face was like an inflated ball”.

He told her: “I have been given until 8 pm. I am supposed to die today.”

The dad has reportedly told friends he forced Sviridov to dig the grave but only to scare him.

He has told cops Sviridov attacked him and fell on the knife in the struggle.

His wife claimed Sviridov tried to stab him with the knife and he fought back with the shovel.

The paedo then "realised he had nothing to live for" and stuck the knife in his own chest, she said.

After burying his pal, the accused dad took the phone to police but did not say he was dead.

Only weeks later did he confess the knife fight and the site of the grave.

Unusually, he was not remanded in custody despite an active murder case – indicating he could be shown mercy because of the horrific circumstances.

A judge will decide what happens next in the case.
