“They are not citizens of Russia, so they don’t want their names to be announced… According to them, after being searched, they were tortured. The security forces representatives tied them to chairs and beat them up. Beat them with legs, not just one person, and then they were subjected to electric shock. Into the body part, which isn’t appropriate to name, a metal object was put, and electrocuted. This happened 12 times. After that they were threatened into silence,” the advocate for human rights told.

Lawyer Edem Semedliaev also confirms the information about torturing.
