‘Innocent’ trucker is tortured and bludgeoned to death by vigilante parents after girls ‘lied that he had touched them “below the waist” while giving them a lift’ in Russia
- A girl said Russian Dmitry Chikvarkin, 48, had touched her and a three-year-old
- The truck driver had given a lift to the two children at the request of their parents
- The children’s parents and three male friends attacked the driver, the police said
Parents who took the law into their own hands to punish a ‘paedophile’ are now facing murder charges after torturing and ‘killing an innocent man’ with ‘particular cruelty’.
Police believe that a girl, ten, who said Russian Dmitry Chikvarkin, 48, had touched her and a three-year-old was ‘lying’ as a ‘joke’.
The truck driver had given a lift to the two children at the request of their parents to take them to a carer.

When the three-year-old’s mother Valeria Dunaeva, 25, came to collect the girls, they told her that Chikvarkin ‘had touched them below the waist’, it is claimed.
She reacted furiously, and told her lover Sergey Chabin, 33, father of the ten-year-old.
The pair gathered three male friends and went to attack the truck driver acting as vigilantes, say police in Verkhnyaya Pyshma, Sverdlovsk region.
A law enforcement source told Znak newspaper: ‘They found the man who previously gave a lift to the children.
‘First, he was raped in the anus with a metal pipe.
‘Then they smashed his head with the same pipe, breaking his skull.’
The woman who had cared for the children – an aunt of Dunaeva’s ex-husband – was attacked as she tried to protect her friend Chikvarkin.
The truck driver, the father of a six-year-old girl, was alive when the group left but died later from head wounds.
A friend told Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper: ‘He just wanted to help by giving the kids a life, but he was killed.
‘He would never harm children.’

Police say they have interviewed both children and believe the older girl invented the accusation as a ‘joke’.
They concluded the claim he had touched the pair was a ‘lie’.
Dunaeva and Chabin along with an alleged accomplice Mikhail Ivanov, 27, have been detained.
Reports say they are charged with ‘murder with special cruelty by a group of persons by prior conspiracy.’
Two other ‘attackers’ are reportedly on the run.
The men face possible life sentences, and the woman up to 20 years in prison.
