KAZAN, May 12 (Itar-Tass) — Policemen of another two police stations Derbyshki and Aviastroitelny are suspected of beating a detainee in Kazan. The criminal case was opened over abuse of office with the use of violence, the press service of the Kazan human rights centre told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
On March 1, a Kazan resident Irek Sharafiyev, 21, was taken to the police station right from his house. At the police station Derbyshki five policemen began to beat him up, demanding to confess in robbery. The policemen hit him in the stomach, back of the head and kidneys and threatened that Sharafiyev’s pregnant wife will be summoned and they will torture her.
On the next day the man was transferred to the police station Aviastroitelny, where policemen continued to beat him up. “Under the pressure of operatives I wrote down a confession in the crime, which did not commit,” Sharafiyev said in a statement.
Only on March 3 thanks to the efforts of the lawyer he was released. The forensic expertise showed that Sharafiyev got various injuries, including a broken nose, a graze wound of the breast.
Tatarstan’s law enforcement agencies got in the focus of public attention after a blatant case at the Kazan police station Dalny, where detainee Sergei Nazarov died of brutal tortures used by policemen. The complex inquiry at the police station Dalny has found other similar crimes. Nine former policemen from this police station are being kept under arrest.
The police station Dalny was disbanded and renamed, all 87 policemen were dismissed and should pass an extraordinary reclassification.
This incident caused large-scale inquiries in Tatarstan’s police. Tatar Interior Minister Asgat Safarov was fired.
