Relatives of World and European Champion in Powerlifting killer told their version of accident
Relatives of Anar Allahveranov accused the world champion of provocation of the murderer.
Relatives of Anar Allahveranov, suspected of killing World and European Champion in Powerlifting Andrey Drachev, accused the fighter of provocation of the murderer.
According to the relatives of wrestler of mixed martial arts Allahveranov, the conflict between the athletes began because of the fact that Drachov allegedly called his opponent "chushka" (piglet).
"Anar is a simple guy who loves sport. He would not want this to happen. As far as we know, Andrey touched Anar, called him a "piglet". A dispute arose between them. Andrey used obscene words. Then a fight happened. Anar did not want to kill him. He was just very angry and could not put up with susceptibilities," the suspect's relatives told Azerbaijani Opinion.
The interlocutors of the edition said that they had never seen Anar staging a fight from scratch.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, 32-year-old Andrey Drachev was killed on the morning of August 20 during a one-on-one fight with 25-year-old Anar Allahveranov near a cafe in Khabarovsk. Allahveranov immediately disappeared from the scene after the fight. At the moment, the siloviki are looking for an athlete. The search is also carried out outside the Khabarovsk Territory.
Meanwhile, deputies of the State Duma have already paid attention to the resonant murder. The parliamentarian, member of the Central Staff of the All-Russia People’s Front, Mikhail Starshinov, suggested organizing supervision over the martial arts schools. In his opinion, the accidents when professional wrestlers use their skills outside the ring are becoming more common. In addition, deputy head of the A Just Russia faction Oleg Nilov appealed to Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika with a request to take the case of the death of Andrey Drachev under personal control.

The investigation into the high-profile murder of the world champion is ongoing. Given the reputation and family ties of Anar Allakhveranov, whose elder brother is serving a sentence for a similar crime on the grounds of extortion, new episodes may emerge in the case. The family of Andrey Drachev and his lawyers are positive – the killing was no accident.
