The Committee noted that the Special Operations Forces used rubber bullets and special means, however fire weapon was used against them which is proved at least by the nature of the wounds they received.

“The fact that the captured Special Operations Forces officers were left by their colleagues is false,” the law enforcers added, having emphasized that the law enforcers who had been captured were cruelly beaten up.

The storm of Atambaev’s residence in a settlement of Koy-Tash took place on August 7. The Prosecutor-General's Office clarified that the politician had not appeared for three MIA interrogations. So, the law enforcers came to take him, but he violently resisted attempts to detain him. As a result, more than 50 persons got injuries.
