“It’s all because of the bloody carwash!” Wife of killed businessman tells about threats and first attempted on her husband
The woman says unknown persons started calling her husband and sending their anonymous letters, after he acquired a new business in Moscow region’s Vindoye.
The spouse of Togrul Tagiev who was shot on November 21 in Moscow region’s Vindoye told MK there had been an attempted assassination of her husband in spring, this year, and he started receiving threats, after he acquired a carwash as a new business.
“It all started since we purchased that bloody carwash! They started calling him and threatening. I told him we had enough money, selling fruits, and there was no point to risk. He wouldn’t listen. On March 21, when his car was running to the M1 highway, it was shot. My husband was injured in the leg, with 4 bullets having got stuck in the driver’s door. After that, things sort of went back to normal. However, a month ago, my husband launched this carwash. I think he was killed by the same people who shot him the first time,” his spouse said. She said he was a father of two - a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old.
The CrimeRussia had earlier reported that the businessman had been shot on November 21, when he was leaving the hospital where he had an MRI. One bullet hit his face, another one - his thigh. The fatally wounded was taken to the hospital by his brother. Law enforcement officers found four 9mm cartridge cases and a bullet; his Rover Range’s driver’s and passenger’s left doors had 7 bullets. Criminal case has been opened under article Murder.
Togrul Tagiev moved to Moscow about 15 years ago to earn money; he left his family in Azerbaijan. He sent money to his spouse and two children.
Initially, the man dealt with small-scale trading; then, he opened a greengrocery store in a major food facility.
In 2018, the official became a founder of a fund that deals with shooting and entrapment of wild animals in a hunting sector he supervises. With that, the official did not report about it to his senior executives.
