A Moscow college teacher, detained for storing radioactive materials, claimed he needed them to make his friend immortal by exposing him to radiation, a police source said on Monday.

Moscow’s police detained at the end of last week a 35-year-old teacher in the western part of the city and discovered six kilograms of radioactive substances and another eight kilograms in his garage, the source said.

The detainee explained that he had a friend who was convinced he could become immortal through exposure to fissionable materials and even visited the zone of the Chernobyl nuclear accident for this purpose. The two collected contaminated items to continue the treatment.

On Sunday, a criminal case against the man started for the illegal handling of radioactive materials, for which he may get up to seven years in prison, the source said
