Head of Ingush MIA ССЕ accused of banditry; victim’s Audi A6 found at relative’s place
The arrested men had threatened the Azerbaijani extorting money for "non-disclosure of the victim’s love affair with an Ingush woman."
Details have surfaced telling more of the outrageous robbery, masterminded by Timur Khamkhoev, the Head of Ingushetia’s Center for Combating Extremism (CCE).
A source told Interfax that Timur Khamkhoev’s subordinates are also involved in the case of aggravated assault on the man from Azerbaijan (formerly mistakenly referred to as a man from Ingushetia in the media). Among the suspects are the Center’s detectives Aslan Khamkhoev, Hasan Osmiev, Ahmed Dobriev, Isoi Aspiev and Ahmed Dolgiev, as well as a Republic’s policeman Bekhan Tamaskhanov. According to the official information, however, only their superior Khamkhoev has been detained so far.
The regional Investigative Committee specified that the Azerbaijani had turned to them himself. The victim reported that on November 9, in the city of Karabulak, armed men claiming to be law enforcement officials forced him into a Lada Priora and took to a place he did not know. Then, the rogue policemen beat up the man and took away his mobile phone. Besides, the suspects seized his Audi A6 and demanded that the Azerbaijani give them 800 thousand rubles within a month to get his property back. Investigators added that the officers also extorted money for “non-disclosure of the victim’s love affair with an Ingush woman." Having announced all the demands, the officers released their victim.
During operational activities at the CCE Head's house, security officials found a few dozens of ammunition rounds, and the Audi A6 that happened to be at the place of Khamkhoev’s relative. The car was confiscated.
A criminal case has been initiated under part 2 of Art. 162 of the Criminal Code (Robbery committed by a group of persons by previous concert).
