Dmitri Bogotich, who was extradited from Kyrgyzstan, was detained on suspicion of heading a gang of neo-Nazis in Petah Tikva.
Bogotich's gang – Patrol 36 - carried out alleged hate crimes against religious people, the homeless and foreign workers. He escaped to Russia immediately following his first investigation in the case in 2007, before the harshest attacks were even discovered.
Bogotich was accompanied on his flight to Israel by Israeli police who detained him once the flight landed in the country and then proceeded to handcuff and chain him.
Back in 2007, eight members of the gang were arrested on suspicion of assaulting various individuals, and mostly drug addicts and homosexuals.
Bogotich, however, was the only one who disappeared and apparently fled to Kyrgyzstan.
