BARNAUL, February 21 (Itar-Tass) —— A police officer is suspected of causing deliberate moderate bodily damage to a businessman, who was summoned for interrogation in the Altai Territory. The criminal case was opened over the incident, a source in the territorial investigation department in the Investigative Committee told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The car of the businessman was stopped for a police check, the source said. The police confiscated financial documents, promissory notes and a big sum of money from him.
On the same day the businessman, who is not a defendant in any criminal case, was summoned for interrogation. The police officer and the businessman had a quarrel in the Altai territorial police department over the lawfulness of money and promissory notes confiscation.
“As the quarrel sparked up the policeman hit the injured party on the face and broke his nose,” the source said.
