MOSCOW, June 28 (Itar-Tass) — A double terrorist act has been thwarted in Russia’s North Caucasian region of Ingushetia thanks to the local residents’ vigilance.
A spokesman for the information center of the National Antiterrorist Committee told Itar-Tass residents of the town of Nazran had tipped the Interior agencies on a suspicious object they had seen at an abandoned construction site on Moskovskaya Street.
An emergency response team that arrived on the spot found a plastic bag with an improvised explosive device in it.
An ambushment was set up at the site. Somewhat later, a Lada Priora passenger car stopped near the spot where the bag was lying and a man got out of the car to pick the bag up.
Police officers approached him and demanded his IDs but he answered with opening gunfire. The man died when the police opened retaliatory gunfire.
“Forensic identification showed he was a 32-year-old Muslim Gazikov, a devout paramilitary,” the spokesman said.
As demolition experts were examining the site, they detected one more improvised explosive device stuffed with incapacitating elements like screw plugs, bolts and screw-nuts.
The bomb had apparently been designed to destroy the group of operatives and investigators that would arrive to work at the site where the first explosive was to be found.
Both devices were rendered harmless on the spot.
A search in the killed paramilitary’s car showed he had a military uniform, instruments and component parts for manufacturing explosive devices.
