The Main Investigations Directorate of the Russia’s Investigative Committee continue investigation against Oleg Belov charged with a brutal murder (part 2 of article 105 of the RF Penal Code) and against Head of district police station Alexander Bolchak, his deputy Vyacheslav Nikitin, Head of the division Viktor Miller and district police officers Dmitry Oblivin, Vladimir Filimonov suspected of a crime under part 3 of article 293 of the RF Penal Code (negligence involving death of two or more people).

At present the investigators made a decision to detain Dmitry Oblivin. According to investigators the records of the check carried out by Oblivin has the explanation written by Belov’s wife that he had beat their children and threatened to kill and dismember the children and his wife. It was Oblivin, who did nothing about that.

It was reported earlier, that in the period between October 2014 and July 2015, Belov’s wife had complained many times to police station No 5 in Nizhny Novgorod that he beat his family, threatened to kill and dismember them, including the children. Her complaints had not been checked for months, while district police officers refused to open investigation with consent of their superiors. Criminal omission of the police officers made it possible for Belov to commit a cruel crime.

The investigation is ongoing.
