Chechen police officer shots businessman out of blood feud
The junior sergeant has voluntarily surrendered to the police.
In Alkhan-Yurt, Urus-Martan district of Chechnya, 27-year-old police officer Mayrbek Tashaev has shot 36-year-old local businessman Apti Dutaev with his government-issue rifle. According to Komsomolskaya Pravda’s sources, he has committed the murder out of blood feud.
The newspaper reports that two years ago, Dutaev and local resident Magomadov – Tashaev’s relative – had a conflict. In a duel of sorts, Dutaev shot Magomadov. Despite the fact that a criminal case into the murder was initiated, it was soon terminated.
Then Tashaev decided to seek revenge on his own. The junior sergeant fired 44 shots with AKS-74U at businessman’s Mercedes-Benz 222. The latter died in hospital from multiple wounds.
The day after the murder, Tashaev came to the police and told about what happened, surrendering. A criminal case was initiated against him. Another rifle, which allegedly belonged to Dutaev, was discovered at the murder site.
Alexander Kravtsov, Oleg Varlamov (Varkamov) and Mikhail Marasigyan (Marsikyan) have been charged with drugs and psychotropic substances trafficking. A citizen of Ukraine, Yuri Tribusyan (Tribasyan) was also detained.
Documents on granting rewards to the Red Army soldiers during the Great Patriotic War emerged on the website of the Ministry of Defense in the public domain. Financial incentives were provided for special military services including wrecked tanks.
