No suspects left in case of Rovshan Lenkoransky’s murder
All those who had been detained on suspicion of involvement in the thief’s death were released.
There has been an unexpected twist in the loud case of the murder of Rovshan Dzhaniev (Rovshan Lenkoransky), an influential thief in law, which happened in Istanbul late on August 17. The Sputnik Azerbaijan newspaper wrote that each of the four arrested earlier on suspicion of involvement in the murder has been released.
Previously, the CrimeRussia reported that the Turkish police detained four people, who had been close to Rovshan Lenkoransky – namely, Talybhanly Hadzhibaba Tahir oglu, known in the criminal world as Haji Beylagansky, Zaur Isayev (Zaur Sumgayitsky), Vahid Bakinsky, and an Azerbaijani entrepreneur who had originally been referred to by the media as the victim’s driver. It turned out however that all of the above have not been involved in the high-profile crime and were released, although one of them has been a witness in the murder case of a thief within the law Goji Bakinsky (who was shot in Istanbul in August 2013).
Rovshan Lenkoransky had been one of the most influential Azerbaijani thieves, who was killed in an attack in Istanbul late on August 17. After two hitmen shot him, the victim was badly wounded when brought to hospital and doctors were unable to save his life.
Police officers took Kristina Morozova to a police station to check her identity, where she ended up getting a closed craniocerebral injury, minor cerebral contusion, fissure fracture of her cheekbone, fracture of her left sphenoid bone, and large leg bruise.
Viktor Trutnev, ex-Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, has finished his career ‘in style’ – he went to jail. The Moscow Garrison Military Court has recently detained the retired general for the duration of the investigation. The former police commander is accused of mediation in bribery and bribe extortion. Trutnev was turned in by his former accomplices – FSB officers trying to extort 3 million rubles ($52.3 thousand) from the Director of Snegirev Research Technological Institute in exchange for covering up violations identified at the enterprise.
