Dagestan policemen were detained under suspicion of extortion
At the moment, investigative activities are held at the place of work and at the place of residence of the detained officers.
On September 5, two high-ranking employees of the Dagestan police were detained: the Head of Administration of Criminal Investigation of the Office of Ministry of Internal Affairs in Khasavyurt Rasoul Saduyev and the Deputy Chief of Administration of Criminal Investigation of the MIA in Dagestan Gimbat Lakhiyalov. The investigation suspected law enforcement authorities of extortion. Besides, chiefs of the Dagestan Ministry of Internal Affairs presumably acted together with the former Head of the Kizilyurotvsky Administration of Internal Affairs Askhabali Zairbekov, who is accused of creation of an organized criminal grouping.
According to TASS, other police officers, except Saduyev and Lakhiyalov, were also detained within the case of extortion, however their exact quantity is still unknown.
First, 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev tried to set fire to the Severny shopping center, then he began to attack the visitors with an ax and a knife, and later, after running outside, he stabbed random people in the street. Four out of the seven wounded are severely injured.
The woman said she has remained silent because she was afraid she and her daughter might have been killed. However, she decided to give the information away after the investigator who investigated the murder mysteriously died.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, which had previously approved an indictment in a high-profile bootlegging case against billionaire and Forum St Petersburg Group of Companies CEO Dmitry Mikhalchenko, is now demanding the Russian Supreme Court to change the initial jurisdiction.
