Police said the 49-year-old chess grandmaster-turned-opposition activist bit on the finger of one of several officers dragging him away from a Moscow court, where he was supporting three members of the Russian feminist punk-rock band Pussy Riot — who were convicted on Friday over an anti-Kremlin “punk prayer” at an Orthodox Christian cathedral.
Kasparov denied all allegations and claimed police arrested him for no reason. He threatened taking action against the police for twisting his arms and kicking him in the crotch on the way to the police van.
