Trial of police officer from Dousti district: police vs medical workers

Officers from the Dousti police station claim that Tolibjon Doustov was still alive when they took him to the hospital in the Qubodiyon district.  Meanwhile, medical workers say the opposite.
The Khatlon regional court is considering criminal proceedings instituted against Mahmadullo Idiyev, an officer of the Interior Ministry’s office in the Dousti district of the Khatlon province, who is charged with excessing powers.
As it had been reported earlier, the 50-year-old resident of the Shahritous district (Khatlon province) Tolibjon Doustov died on July 25 last year after being detained in Shahritous by officers of the Dousti police department.
The trial of Mahmadullo Idiyev began on February 6.  Proceedings started with the reading of the indictment, which charges Idiyev with excessing powers.
On the same day, the trial was adjourned until February 8.  The judge ordered the adjournment over the objections of defense lawyer Daler Qurbonov, representing Doustov’s family, said he had not managed to familiarize himself with whole case materials.
The trial was adjourned on February 8 until February 12.
According to an official version, Doustov, who was detained on suspicion of involvement in drug trafficking, died of heart attack.
Speaking in the court on February 13, police officers said that Tolibjon Doustov was still alive when they took him to the hospital in the Qubodiyon district.  They claimed that no violence had been used against Doustov.  
Meanwhile, four physicians of the intensive care unit at the Qubodiyon central district hospital noted that Doustov had made no signs when police officer had taken him to the hospital.  They said they had carried out all necessary resuscitation procedures but it had not helped.  
Doustov’s relatives are sure that he died after being beaten by police officers.  They suppose that police officers beat him on the way to the police station and when they took him to the hospital in Qubodiyon, he was already dead.
