Greek police probe launched after officers accused of abduction

Three policemen are under investigation for allegedly kidnapping and assaulting a 35-year-old man.

One of the policemen works at Athens security police headquarter, another is stationed at the Aghios Dimitrios precinct in southern Athens and the other at a police station in Paiania, east of the capital.

The three are alleged to have held their victim against his will at the Paiania precinct, handcuffed him and beaten him because he allegedly conned a fellow officer out of 3,000 euros.

The 35-year-old had been convicted of drugs offenses in the past and was obliged to report to Paiania police station regularly.
