Student placed in pre-trial detention center after killing biker in car accident
Alcohol was found in the blood of arrested Arkady Smely. Moreover, he tried to flee the scene.
The Nikulinsky Court of Moscow arrested student of Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) Arkady Smelov, who, according to the investigators, struck and killed a biker on Kutuzovsky Avenue and fled the scene, on Thursday, June 29.
As RIA Novosti reports with reference to the press service of court, the young man is placed in the pre-trial detention center till August 26.
To recall, the incident occurred on the night of July 27. Two students of MGIMO - Arkady Smelov and Yulia Dubovtseva, driving Mercedes-Benz ML, hit the 23-year-old head of the motor-section MADI moto of the Department of Physical Training of MADI University Arkady Dymov, while changing lines. It is unclear who was driving the car during the road accident. As witnesses assure, Yulia was the one who hit the biker, and Arkady moved to a driver's seat later and fled the place of the road accident. But he did not manage to leave far - literally several meters further, the young man flew in a stop and was detained by traffic police officers.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, Yulia Dubovtseva and Arkady Smelov - children of influential businessmen. In this connection, the family of the dead biker expressed their fears that the guilty persons will manage to avoid punishment.
In early November 2017, Basmanny Court of Moscow has satisfied the motion brought by the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) and remanded Aleksander Shukyurov, Director of the Capital Renovation Directorate State Budgetary Institution of Moscow, in custody. The head of the institution subordinate to the Department of Capital Renovation of the City of Moscow that had acted as the client in tenders worth dozens of billions of rubles is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale.
