The thief in law was detained in Turkey.

Thief in law Nadir Salifov aka Guli has been taken to the Istanbul Safety Affairs Management to give evidence and be checked for involvement in the murder of Rovshan Dzhaniev (Rovshan Lenkoransky). This is reported by Sputnik Azerbaijan referring to a source close to the Istanbul criminal underworld.

Turkish media report that the local police got interested in Guli back in August 2016, when unknown people riddled Dzhaniev’s jeep and critically wounded the thief.

At the same time, it is reported that the immediate reason for the detention of Salifov, who had lived in Turkey since his release from prison a year ago, was the recent Russian media publications about his criminal activity in Russia. 

This weekend, it was reported that representatives of Guli in Russia had finally established control over the large wholesale market Food City, which is located not far from Moscow, on the 22 km of the Kaluzhskoye highway, having imposed a tribute to its employees. The thief himself gave orders via Skype while being in Turkey.

In addition, with the assistance of his underbosses in the field, Guli established contacts with major Azerbaijani businessmen in Russia and made them pay a monthly tribute in the amount of 2 to 4 million rubles ($29,940 to 59,880).

At the same time, according to Sputnik Azerbaijan’s source, investigators have no direct evidence against Salifov in the murder of Rovshan Lenkoransky; there are only speculations.

According to one of the versions, Dzhaniev paid for ordering his henchmen to murder thief in law Alibala Gamidov (Godzha Bakinsky). August 18, 2013, six masked armed men entered the housing complex in the Bahçheshir district of Istanbul and seriously wounded Gamidov and his 29-year-old girlfriend Asiyat Alasheva, a Russian citizen. Allegedly, when dying on the way to the hospital, Gamidov told Alasheva a single word, which was ‘Rovshan.’ 

Godzha Bakinsky used to belong to Guli’s clan, and the latter eventually revenged Dzhaniev for the death of his friend.

According to the source, Salifov’s entourage believes that he will be released as soon as law enforcers clarify a number of issues of interest to them. Recently, Guli has expected to be invited to the police.

In August this year, Guli was also detained along with his nephew Magomed Kurbanov in the capital of Montenegro, Podgorica, where he had come to celebrate his birthday and simultaneously hold a small gathering. However, the thief was released already on the following day. 

To recall, in Russia, the thief is charged with Kidnapping (Art. 126 of the Russian Criminal Code) and Extortion (Art. 163). In the middle of December last year, the Presnensky Court of Moscow arrested Salifov in absentia and put him on the wanted list.
