MOSCOW, November 1 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow's Khoroshevsky court on Thursday sanctioned the arrest of three police officers from the Khoroshevo-Mnevniki precinct Dmitry Kolotovkin, Alexander Vlasenko and Artyom Skubak, detained on suspicion of murder, abduction and extortion.
The court thereby met the investigator's petition. After studying the case materials, the judge agreed that the suspects who had the knowledge of investigative actions, could escape, put pressure on witnesses or obstruct the probe into the criminal case.
Earlier on Thursday, another suspect in the criminal case, identified as Andrei Alyokhin, turned himself in to the authorities.
Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Tass that Alyokhin, "one of the suspects in the criminal case reported to the investigator and wrote a statement of confession to the crime."
According to the Interior 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, a 22-year-old citizen of Azerbaijan, 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 three police were detained in a joint operation by SK personnel and agents of the Interior Ministry’s department for the Central Federal District.
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.
