According to investigators, they have killed the businessman because of a debt of 200 thousand rubles.
In Leningrad region operatives of the Criminal Investigation in Vsevolozhsk district detained two suspects in the murder of a businessman. According to 47news, one of the arrested was a former officer of the 7th Police Department Boris Kushnir. He with a friend Mikhail Yurtsev allegedly strangled a missing businessman and robbed him, because they decided not to repay the debt of 200 thousand rubles. The deceased entrepreneur Veli Gumbatov engaged in the cultivation of vegetables in greenhouses in the Lugskiy district of Leningrad Region. Kushnir with Yurtsev had to pay for goods, which they had already received.
About a loss the wife of a businessman announced to the Ministry of Internal Affairs on August, 1 after he failed to return from a meeting with partners. In addition, from the Gumbatov's apartment it was lost 400 thousand rubles. On the surveillance cameras it can be seen that Kushnir and Yurtsev were near the Gumbatov's house on the day of disappearance and theft. After the arrest one of them confessed to the crime.
The Investigative Committee opened a criminal case under article Murder (Art. 105 of the Criminal Code). Now detainees are arrested, and investigators and detectives are looking for the body of the deceased.
