NAZRAN, October 17 (Itar-Tass) — Police in Ingushetia detained two suspected instigators of a fight between local residents and fans of the Makhachkala football club "Anzhi", which occurred on Sunday. Several people requested medical assistance after the clash.
Criminal cases have been opened against the detainees over "hooliganism" and "deliberate destruction of property," Secretary of the republic's Security Council Akhmed Kotiyev told Itar-Tass.
Police are taking measures to ascertain the identity of and hold responsible other participants in the incident, Kotiyev noted.
Chairman of Ingushetia's government Musa Chiliyev denounced the fight. He regretted the fact that household quarrels had been acquiring political and national shade recently.
The incident cannot be excused, regardless of the motives the instigators had. The prime minister warned against making hasty conclusions or fanning the situation around the incident.
Chiliyev also ordered law-enforcement bodies to take measures against the instigators and participants in the group fight.
The fight occurred on the federal highway "Kavkaz" near the village of Gazi-Yurt in suburban Nazran on Sunday evening. The fans were returning after a game between Spartak /Nalchik/ and Anzhi /Makhachkala/ which had ended in a draw (1:1).
According to law-enforcement bodies, the pretext for the fight was a road accident. One of the fans' cars collided with a local resident's vehicle. A conflict flared up which escalated to a fight. Several people requested medical assistance as a result.
