Police in Chelyabinsk detained three arson suspects of Znak.com journalist Marina Malkova's car. Presumably, two were the perpetrators, and the third gave them a ride to the crime scene.

This was reported by Interfax with reference to an informed source.

The interlocutor of the agency clarified that three were detained in Korkino.

“In relation to two suspects, a petition has been sent to the court to choose a preventive measure in the form of detention”, - the source said, adding that the driver's involvement in the crime is currently being established.

As the newspaper was told in the Kurchatovskiy district court, the request of the investigation to arrest the detainees will be considered today.

Recall that the BMW X1 car, owned by Malkova, was set on fire on the night of November 24. Eyewitnesses indicated that all four wheels of the car caught fire at the same time.

The editors of Znak.com do not exclude that the arson of a car may be associated with the professional activities of Malkova, who specializes in covering corruption problems and talks about malfeasance in government agencies.
