ST. PETERSBURG, October 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Investigation Committee has opened a criminal case against Uzbek nationals suspected of injuring a Zenit football club fan, causing his death, the committee's St. Petersburg department said on Friday.
The investigative authorities in St. Petersburg have initiated the criminal case under Article 111, Part Four, of the Russian Criminal Code – intentional infliction of heavy health harm that caused death, the department said.
According to the investigators' information, a brawl between Uzbek nationals who worked in a basement and four local residents took place at a staircase in a building, at Narodnaya Street, on October 18 at about 22:00. In the conflict, 41-year-old Ikram Razikov struck a 22-year-old local resident with a metal pipe. The young man, an active Zenit FC fan and a member of the Virazh fan movement, died some time later. Another local resident was also injured in the brawl. He was taken to hospital.
Aside from Razikov, his 33-year-old brother Nizam Razikov and 32-year-old Mamur Kudratov are detained as suspects.
The investigation into the case is continuing.
It has been established that it was a domestic conflict. There is no information that it is linked with football or the fan movement, the investigative department noted.
