MAKHACHKALA, March 7 (Itar-Tass) — A criminal case was opened over the blast at a police post in Dagestan, in which five officers died and another two were injured.
Criminal proceedings were opened over "attempted murder of law-enforcement personnel," "illegal turnover of explosives and explosive devices," "illegal making of explosives and explosives devices," and "malicious damage to other's property," a spokesman for the regional department of the Investigative Committee told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
According to the preliminary information, a woman set off a bomb near the police post in the village of Karabudakhkent on Tuesday evening. Supposedly, she is the widow of a militant killed in a shootout with police.
Police stopped the woman as she was trying to enter the premises of the post at the entrance to Karabudakhkent. The bomb's yield was two kilograms of TNT. The explosive device was filled with destructive agents.
A group of investigators is working at the scene.
