The press service of the Department for the Moscow Region of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) confirmed that three policemen from Orekhovo-Zuevo had been detained on suspicion of causing serious bodily harm to the 46-year-old man.

According to Olga Vradiy, the spokesperson of the Investigating Department for the Moscow Region, the incident occurred on April 11.
