Cop who killed teenager confesses to planting evidence
The incident took place in Tyva at the end of October. The policeman, Bair Borbak-ool, said the high school student was drunk and drew a toy gun at him, which he mistook for a real weapon. But the investigators became suspicious of Borbak-ool’s story when medical tests revealed no alcohol in the teenagers’ blood.
Borbak-ool has now admitted that the boy did not threaten him and that he had planted the toy gun.
“After [Borbak-ool] shot at the teenager, emergency personnel took the victim to the hospital, [Borbak-ool] then returned to the crime scene and planted the toy gun as well as a shell of the bullet he had claimed to have fired as a warning. He has confessed to this. The investigation is still not finished,” an assistant to the Prosecutor told RIA Novosti on Thursday.
