Police chief in Khanty-Mansiysk AD dismissed for torture of detainees
Eduard Baydakov, ex-head of Pyt-Yakh Administration of MIA

Chief of Pyt-Yakh Administration of MIA Eduard Baydakov was dismissed after a scandalous story with the sadistic torture of detainees at the police station.

Let us recall that, as previously reported by the CrimeRussia, workers of the Pyt-Yakh MIA Administration holding senior positions in the police used sophisticated sadistic methods of torture against detainees: beating them and hanging on a rack at the height of about 180 cm. The fact that detainees were tortured at the very police duty room is the most paradoxical.  

According to Press Head of the MIA Administration for the Yugra Khanty-Mansiysk District Olga Abmaykina, employees of the police department are defendants in the case.

As for Eduard Baydakov's dismissal, this decision was taken by members of the board of the regional Ministry of Internal Affairs after summing up the work over the past year. As explained by the agency's press service, this dismissal is connected with the rotation of the administrative board. Baydakov is currently on vacation, and Roman Simonov, who had previously served as Deputy to Eduard Baydakov, has been appointed acting head of the city's MIA Administration.

When Baydakov comes from vacation leave, higher authorities will decide on his transfer to another unit.
