MOSCOW, October 31 (Itar-Tass) — The police officers who detained three of their colleagues from the Interior Ministry's department for the Khoroshevo-Mnevniki district, suspected of murder, will be decorated, the Interior Ministry's press service said on Wednesday.
"Head of the Ministry's department for the Central Federal District Sergei Derevyanko will nominate the officers for decoration," the press service said.
It took the detectives two months to expose the group engaged in illegal car sales and suspected of murder.
Earlier on Wednesday, reports said the investigators had asked the court to arrest the three police officers suspected of murder, abduction and extortion.
According to the Ministry, the suspects tried to come in possession of the car belonging to their acquaintance on September 5. They stabbed him at least 77 times. When the man died, the suspects hid his body in a wooded area in the village of Zagoryansky, Moscow region, and fled in the stolen car, which the investigators found in the yard of the apartment house of one of the suspects, a police officer," the Investigative Committee said.
The suspects were detained in a joint operation by SK personnel and agents of the Interior Ministry’s department for the Central Federal District. They were identified as Khoroshevo-Mnevniki precinct police Dmitry Kolotovkin, Alexander Vlasenko and Artyom Skubak.
The case materials were handed over to the SK department for Moscow. The suspects were relieved of their duties.
Head of the Interior Ministry’s main department Anatoly Yakunin dismissed five senior police officials of the Khoroshevo-Mnevniki department, and ordered performance review for the remaining personnel.
