MOSCOW, May 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Investigative Committee's department in Tatarstan has initiated legal proceedings against unidentified policemen of the Derbyshki police station of the city of Kazan on charges of power abuse with violence, an Investigative Committee source told Itar-Tass on Monday.
According to the investigators, on April 2, last year, an elderly woman with a serious cranial injury was carried by an ambulance to a Kazan hospital. The woman died in the hospital in a few hours. The same day, the woman's 40-year-old daughter-in-law and 52-year-old son were taken to the Derbyshki police station on suspicion of committing a crime.
Some policemen, demanding the two confess they had committed the crime, inflicted bodily injuries on them and unlawfully took them into custody in a cell for administrative offenders. As a result, the woman gave herself up, admitting she had allegedly committed the crime. A criminal case was opened against her on the same day. However, later the criminal case was dismissed as there was no evidence against her.
An investigation is continuing to establish the circumstances of the incident.
Large-scale inspections are conducted in Tatarstan after the case of tortures in Kazan's Dalny police station raised a public outcry last March. As a result, the republic's Interior Minister Asgat Safarov has been dismissed.
