A dad who confessed to killing a friend he believed raped his six-year-old daughter made the alleged paedophile dig his own grave before knifing him in the chest, it has been claimed.

Oleg Sviridov, 32, was killed in August in Russia after his friend Vyacheslav discovered videos of the alleged abuse of his six-year-old daughter on Sviridov’s phone.

Sviridov was a long time friend of Vyacheslav and was godfather to the little girl, now nine, and had looked after her on his own multiple times.

Videos of him attacking other young victims were also said to be found on the phone, with one of them reportedly identified as the daughter of his former live-in partner.
