Chechen Aschab Uspanov, who was detained by the Russian police the night after the terrorist attack in Krasnogorsk on the outskirts of Moscow, lost his life at the police station. They probably tortured him, wrote the Russian news portal Novaya Gazeta Evropa, citing information from social networks. Footage of the body with obvious signs of beatings appeared on the social network. The security forces have not yet commented on the case, added the portal, which operates from Latvian exile.

The head of Russia’s FSB secret service spoke of the detention of eleven suspects, including four alleged perpetrators, a day after the March 22 attack in Krasnogorsk. So far, ten accused have appeared before the court, which has taken them into custody. The four alleged attackers were brought to court with obvious signs of torture, according to media reports, on which a Kremlin spokesman declined to comment. According to the portal, the martyred Chechen may have been the eleventh suspect.

The Agency server also reported that Uspanov died at the police station a few hours after his arrest. Taisa Uspanova announced her son’s death to him. According to her version, Uspanov was detained by the police while he was on his way to his wife, whom he called twice more on his mobile phone. The second time he asked her to come to the police for him and stated that he had been rude to the officers. When the woman arrived two hours later, the police told her that her husband was “no more”. When she wondered how this was possible when she spoke to him a while ago, the policeman, according to Uspanov’s mother, replied: “You spoke, but you won’t.”

Uspanov, who was about 30 years old and worked on a construction site in the Russian capital, was returning home from work. While waiting for the bus, unknown masked men pounced on him at the bus stop, and he naturally resisted them. Only later did it become clear that they were members of the security forces who detained the Chechens on suspicion of participating in a terrorist attack, reported Novaya Gazeta Jevropa. At the same time, the portal refers to the banned Chechen organization National Movement Adat, according to which Uspanov was also known by the name Aschab Kasuyev. After his arrest, he was tortured, four ribs and a vertebra were broken, bruises were left everywhere on his body and strangulation marks on his neck. After several hours of torture, the arrested person died, according to Adat, according to whom the police are trying to sweep the death investigation under the carpet as an “unfortunate accident”, or brand Uspanov as a terrorist. His relatives buried him in Chechnya.
