MOSCOW, August 31 (Itar-Tass) — Investigators established the identities of two suicide bombers who blasted themselves in Grozny's Lenin district on Tuesday.
"One of them is Magamed Dashayev, 22, a native of Urus Martan, and the other is resident of the village of Starye Atagi, student of the Oil Institute Adlan Khamidov, aged 21," Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass.
The explosions occurred in Bogdan Khmelnitsky Street on Tuesday evening. Seven people were killed outright, and another 23 were injured. Several hours later, the eighth victim died in hospital despite the provided medical assistance.
The press service of the Chechen leader reported that there were six police officers, one employee of the Emergency Situations Ministry and one local resident among the fatalities.
"Twenty-two people remain in hospitals; of those, five are in a critical condition," the press service said.
According to Markin, an SK investigator was injured in one of the explosions. He was not far from the scene when he was returning from work, and was injured in a new explosion when he tried to render assistance to victims, he said.
Chechen police said there had been three explosions. The first bomb was set off, when a police patrol tried to detain a suspicious man. When more police and local residents gathered at the scene, another two suicide bombers blew themselves up in the crowd.
The criminal case was opened under five articles of Russia's Criminal Code: "attempted murder of law-enforcement personnel," "murder," "attempted murder," "Illegal turnover of weapons," and "illegal manufacturing of weapons."
The case will be handled by the SK's department for the North Caucasus Federal District.
