Protesters say Kulov should be held responsible for the death of parliamentary deputy Tynychbek Akmatbaev, who was killed in a hostagetaking incident at a Kyrgyz prison on 20 October. He was visiting the jail on behalf of prisoners who were demanding better living conditions.
Meanwhile, Kulov today started reshuffling the Interior Ministry. Omurbek Suvanaliev has been appointed to head the Bishkek police department.
Kulov also sacked Deputy Interior Minister Alymbai Sultanov, replacing him with former Bishkek police chief Moldomusa Kongantiev.
