MOSCOW, November 14 (Itar-Tass) —— A ringleader of the so-called Caspian illegal armed group has been liquidated during a special operation conducted by the National Anti-Terrorist Committee in Dagestan, its representative told Itar-Tass on Monday.
One of the two militants earlier blockaded in a residential block in Caspiysk, was identified as the 33-year-old Dzhamayev Magomed nicknamed Mukhamad, who was a descendant of Caspiysk.
Dzhamayev Magomed was known as a ringleader of a terrorist subversive armed group responsible for numerous terrorist crimes, arsons, shop robberies, encroachments on the life of citizens, assassinations of peaceful civilians and law enforcers, including an attempt on the life of precinct police inspector Abduyev committed in Caspiysk on October 18, 2011, the same source said.
The second militant was identified as the 22-year-old Islam Rashidov, one of the most aggressive militant in the criminal group.
The two militants were tracked down and blockaded in a private house in Ramazan Aliyev Street in Caspiysk at around 4.00 am Monday. The operation was conducted by servicemen of the operational headquarters of the National Anti-Terrorist Committee in Dagestan, who imposed a regime of antiterrorist operation.
Prior to the operation to blockade the militants, tenants had been evacuated from nearby houses. The bandits were ordered to give up weapons, surrender and let peaceful civilians out of the building. In return, the militants opened gunfire shooting at random.
Despite the incessant gunfire the special task force managed to evacuate six people, including two kids, from the building under gunfire. Then the special task force opened gunfire in retaliation neutralizing the gunmen. A submachine gun AKSU-74 and a gas pistol were confiscated. An emergency regime remains in effect in Caspiysk yet. Investigators have been working on the scene, and FSB sappers have been searching the building.
