Judge Tatiana Vasyuchenko sustained the petition raised by the investigation agency on extending the prison term of Orkhan Zeynalov, who is accused of murdering 25-year-old Yegor Sherbakov, for April 10.

The investigator explained that the prosecutor considered it necessary to check the defendant’s telephone conversations, determine whereabouts of the four witnesses and get expert opinions: “If Orkhan Zeynalov is released, he can flee, because he is a citizen of another country.”

Orkhan Zeynalov’s lawyer objected to the petition noting that his defendant was tortured during the detention. The interrogator noted that the investigation is underway on the fact, but no results have been produced yet.

On October 10, the murder of 25-year-old Egor Sherbakov by a Caucasian caused protest of the local residents. Hundreds of Russian nationalists and skinheads attacked Biryoza trade center and Pokrov fruit store and beat to death Caucasians and Central Asians. Special police forces were deployed at the site. The skinheads showed resistance to the police. They seriously damaged shops, facilities and automobiles in the trade center. A large number of migrants and local residents were injured as a result of incidents committed by Russian nationalists.

On October 15, suspected Orkhan Zeynalov was detained in Kolomna city and taken to Moscow by helicopter. During the preliminary interrogation Orkhan Zeynalov confessed that he had committed in order to protect himself.
