As a result of the blast, one borderguard was killed, while another two received fragmentation wounds and burns. The blast damaged a jeep that started licking fuel and then ignited.
A criminal case was instituted in connection with this fact under three articles of the Russian Criminal Code: “Attempt on the life of officers of law enforcement bodies”, “Illegal production of explosives and explosive devices” and “Premeditated damage of state property”.
Later in the day, officers of local police made an attempt at stopping a jeep to check documents at 22.10 near the village of Mokok of the same district.
