It should be recalled that on May 30 this year, a young man with various bodily injuries was brought to the Andijan branch of the Republican Scientific Center for Emergency Medical Care. According to preliminary data, three officers of the criminal investigation department tortured him to death.

The police officers illegally detained the man and brought him to the DIA administrative building, and then they used torture, causing serious damage to his rights and legitimate interests.

As a result, the young man was taken from the Department of Internal Affairs to the Andijan branch of the Republican Scientific Center for Emergency Medical Care. Unfortunately, he died on June 11.
