Yunus-Bek Evkurov requests special police commission to investigate detainee's death in Ingushetia

At the meeting with the head of the Chief Department for the North-Caucasian Federal District (NCFD) of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA), Ingush leader Yunus-Bek Evkurov has asked to send to the republic a special police commission to investigate the fact of the death of Magomed Daliev, suspected of robbery, who died at a police station.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on July 16, the Ingush MIA reported that 50-year-old Magomed Daliev, suspected of involvement in an armed assault on a bank in the village of Sunzha, died at a police station during interrogation. According to the Ingush MIA, the detainee's death could be caused by heart attack. Daliev's relatives treat the accident as a murder. On July 19, it became known that the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF) launched the criminal investigation into the death of Magomed Daliev on the charge of abuse of power committed by staff members of the Ingush MIA.

Marem Tochieva, the wife of Magomed Daliev, was beaten by law enforcers and tortured. This was claimed by Sirazhdin Sultygov, a member of the public movement "Mekhk-Kkhel". In the criminal case, Marem Tochieva was granted victim status.

On August 3, in Magas, at the meeting with Sergey Bachurin, the head of the Chief Department for the NCFD of the Russian MIA, Yunus-Bek Evkurov announced a request to send to Ingushetia a special commission for the investigation.

The Ingush leader has noted that a similar incident occurred several years ago at the Karabulak GOVD (City Interior District), and after that, a policeman was sentenced to 8 years of imprisonment for using torture against a detainee.

Earlier, Yunus-Bek Evkurov has demanded from the Secretary of the Security Council of Ingushetia to control the progress of the investigation into the circumstances of the Magomed Daliev's death and make public the information revealed by the investigators.
