Caucasian crime group member arrested for homicide in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug
The crime was committed two years ago during a bloody skirmish.
Tolyatti detained a suspect in the murder that took place two years ago in a cafe in Surgut during a bloody skirmish of two diasporas from the Caucasus, informs Znak.com with reference to the press service of the Investigative Directorate of the ICR for Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug.
They clarified that the man was declared wanted in early 2017, but it was possible to detain him only in March of this year. He was charged under part 1 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Murder) and part 1 of Art. 222 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Illegal sale of weapons). The court chose a preventive measure in the form of detention for the accused. The department did not specify other details.
The source of the publication clarifies that this is about the murder committed on January 31, 2017 in cafe Rus. Then, the brawl between the members of local criminal groups - the 'Kurdish' and 'Azerbaijani' ones - resulted in Ruzgar Aliyev, 44, being killed.
The conflict began with the fact that the group of Azerbaijanis beat a Kurd named Imran. The latter, in turn, wanted to take revenge and fix a meeting with the offenders in cafe Rus, where Aliyev was slain.
Before his death, Aliyev was on the radar of the police for illegal possession of weapons. During his detention, he ran down a Special Police Force officer with a car, but was soon released from custody due to the efforts of a fellow countryman that worked in the Surgut police, the source adds.
The Prosecutor General's Office had earlier accused the Moscow region’s ex-official of exceeding official authority, taking a bribe on an especially large scale, and forgery, and demanded to seize assets worth of 9 billion rubles ($135 million) from him.
