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.
