MOSCOW, November 16 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian investigative committee said on Wednesday famous Chechen poet, public figure and pro-rector of Modern Humanitarian Academy Rusaln Akhtakhanov was shot dead by contract killers.
“The method used by killers gave us grounds to make conclusions that this was most probably a contract-style killing,” the committee’s spokesman, Vladimir Markin, said.
According to the investigative committee, “an unidentified killer made several shots at Ruslan Akhtakhanov, when he was getting out of his car on his way home on Begovaya Street at around 23:50 Moscow time on November 15.”
“The investigation considers all possible versions of the killing. Investigators are studying a circle of contacts of the killed, his interests, public and political views,” Markin said.
According to law enforcers, the killers fled the scene by a car leaving it in Moscow’s southwest.
“The car was found burned down. Evidently, the killers were taken by their accomplices on a different car,” police said adding that the gun Akhtakhanov was shot from was found inside the burned car.
The investigation is underway.
Ruslan Akhtakhanov was a laureate of the Artyom Borovik Award for his firm internationalist position in life and work.
