According to the preliminary forensic medical examination results, the man had injuries that he could not inflict by himself. Before the operation, Nazarov told his relatives that he was tortured with the use of champaign bottle in the Dalny police station.
On suspicion of involvement in the crime, five policemen are placed under arrest. They are dismissed from police service. The Dalny station staff is disbanded. Most of the personnel are dismissed. Russian Interior Minister Nurgaliyev issued reprimands to chief of the Russian Interior Ministry’s moral and psychological ensuring department Sergei Triputin and Tatarstan's interior Minister Asgat Safarov.
