MOSCOW, February 2 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Investigative Committee (SK) has dismissed its investigator who was detained together with fans who clashed with OMON policemen in Moscow on Friday after the Spartak-CSKA match.
It is established that the investigator of the Investigative Committee's Babushkinsky inter-district department, Lt. Ilya Mamontov, participated in the clash between fans and policemen. With the fans he was taken to a district police station and brought to account for the administrative offence, an SK source told Itar-Tass.
Under the order of the chief of the SK Moscow department, Mamontov is dismissed from the service in connection with the misconduct that discredits an SK officer. Following the department chief's directions, an inquiry is launched, the source said.
A policeman was injured in the clash on Friday. At about 22:00, when detaining hockey fans for wrongdoing, OMON (special purpose police) officer Andrei Kiryukhin was hit in the head by a bottle thrown from the crowd. With the head injury, he was taken to hospital.
The SK's Moscow department opened a criminal case over the fact on charges of use of violence against a representative of authorities.
An investigation into the case is underway.
