MOSCOW, March 21 (Itar-Tass) — Chief of the Russian Investigation Committee (SK) Alexander Bastrykin arrived in Kazan on Wednesday to check the results of an investigation into facts of abuse of office blamed on policemen of Dalny police department.
Upon arrival Bastrykin met Head of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov. The meeting was attended by a senior official of a group of SK Central apparatus, Sharan Elsultanov, and Chief of Tatarstan’s Investigation Department Pavel Nikolayev.
