In Krasnodar, a district police inspector is dismissed and comes under investigation. He is suspected of the fact that he has beaten a detainee, threatened him to falsify a criminal case against him, and tried to extort 500,000 roubles from him.

According to investigators, on July 29, at the police station, the district police inspector repeatedly hit in the face a resident of the Belorechensk District of Kuban. Then, he demanded from the detainee to give him 500,000 roubles for non-institution of a criminal case against him for possession of drugs allegedly found in his car, reports today the ICRF's Investigating Department for the Krasnodar Territory.

"When the district police inspector had learned that the detained man did not have the above mentioned amount of money, he seized a 217230 Lada car, belonging to the young man," states the report posted on the website of the ICRF's Investigating Department for the Krasnodar Territory.
