Scotland Yard investigates version of murder of Berezovsky's associate
The police suggest that Nikolai Glushkov died as a result of strangulation.
The British police released the first results of the investigation into the death of 68-year-old Nikolai Glushkov, whose body was discovered on March 12 in a house in London, to the public.
As the message of the London police says, according to the conclusion of the pathologist, the cause of Glushkov's death was strangulation. Now, the anti-terrorist unit is considering the version of the murder of Boris Berezovsky’s business partner.
However, law enforcement officers do not associate Glushkov's death with the poisoning of another Russian – ex-colonel of Russian military intelligence Sergei Skripal.
Earlier, it was reported that the Investigative Committee initiated a criminal case into the murder of Glushkov. Also, the media wrote that the body of Nikolai Glushkov with traces of strangulation was discovered by his daughter, who called the police.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
