Kurban Kurbanov, the Deputy Makhachkala Mayor and the head of the department of architecture and town-planning, has been detained.

According to "Interfax" sources, the official was detained within the investigation into the criminal case against Musa Musaev, an ex-Mayor of Makhachkala.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Musa Musaev was arrested on January 21 and accused of abuse of office. According to investigators, his inflicted damage to the budget of Dagestan in the amount of 80 million roubles was caused by allocating a land plot for 1.1 million roubles to a commercial company. On May 14, the court extended Musaev's arrest by two months.

The RIA "Novosti" reports, with reference to its source, that Kurbanov's study was searched.

Let us remind you that Vladimir Vasiliev, the acting head of Dagestan, more than once criticized Makhachkala authorities for the wrong construction and development in the city.
