The head of the Moscow Region police department was suspected of organizing illegal migration to the United States through Mexico

The head of the police department in Dolgoprudny, Moscow Region, Karen Sevikyan, was detained on suspicion of involvement in organizing illegal migration. This was reported on the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the region.

Sevikyan was removed from his official duties. The department began an official check. If his guilt is confirmed, the Interior Ministry promised to fire him and bring him to justice.

A police officer was detained for ferrying Indian citizens to the United States through Mexico, Mash reported . “According to the investigation, Sevikyan, together with other persons, organized unhindered transit through Russia, and also assisted seven Indian citizens in the unhindered execution of documents, bypassing checks,” a source told Interfax. According to him, all seven migrants received new documents and flew to Mexico.

In September 2019, the media reported on searches of the full namesake of the detained police officer. Mash claims to be the same person. Then the investigators came to the head of the police department of Pushkino near Moscow Karen Sevikyan in the framework of the case of the murder of businessman Alexei Pylin, who disappeared in 2012. It was noted that Sevikyan was a witness in the case.
