MOSCOW, August 15 (Itar-Tass) — The Investigative Committee /SK/ put on the wanted list the third suspect in the case over attack on Kazan clerics.
Tatarstan's investigators are looking for "adherents of radical Islam, suspected of involvement in very serious crimes," the SK reported on Wednesday.
Aside from native of Chistopole Rais Mingaleyev and Kazan resident Robert Valeyev, who were put on the wanted list earlier, the SK is looking for native of Kazan Albert Ismagilov, 36. According to the SK, Ismagilov has two criminal convictions and Robert Valeyev has three.
"The suspects are extremely dangerous for the population. They can have firearms and move around in a car," the investigators said. The SK placed the wanted men's photos and distinguishing characteristics on its website.
The SK asked the citizens who have information about their whereabouts to immediately call /834/ 221-74-21, /843/ 291-35-28 or 02.
Earlier this week, Tatarstan's Supreme Court denied bail to local resident Alexei Verezumsky, arrested on suspicion of involvement in the assassination attempt on the life of Tatarstan’s mufti and the murder of his deputy.
The car of Tatarstan's mufti, chairman of the republic’s Spiritual Directorate Ildus Faizov was blasted in Kazan on July 19. He was injured in the explosion. An hour earlier, head of the DUM's education department Valiulla Yakupov, 48, was shot and killed in the entrance to his apartment house.
Both clerics are known in the republic as fighters against extremism. Criminal cases were opened over terrorism, murder and attempted murder on July 19. Seven persons, including Verezumsky, were arrested within the case.
The investigator said Verezumsky, who had embraced Islam, was unemployed. Law-enforcement agents detained him on July 21 and the Yurtazinsky district court sanctioned his arrest on July 23. A search at his apartment found a sawn-off shotgun and ammunition. Verezumsky asked to change the measure of restraint for him to recognizance, but the investigator said that the suspect, if at large, might put pressure on witnesses or obstruct the probe.
Among the persons arrested within the case is former imam of the mosque of the Vysokogorsky district Airat Shakirov, director general of the Shifa company Murat Kudakov, Uzbek citizen Abdunozim Ataboyev, chairman of the board of the Idel-Khadzhh company Rustem Gataullin, and resident of the Laishevsky district of Tatarstan Rustam Kashapov.
Tatarstan's Modzhakheds, a previously unknown organization, has claimed responsibility for the crime. It announced itself in trailers on the Internet.
