NAZRAN, August 21 (Itar-Tass) — Investigators identified masterminds of the terror act in Ingushetia, which killed eight policemen and heavily wounded 15 others, participants in the meeting chaired by Investigative Committee chief Alexander Bastrykin said on Tuesday.
Suspects were put on the federal wanted list.
“Serious steps were taken to investigate the terror act and we hope that this case will be soon solved and all criminals will be found and destroyed,” Ingushetia’s President Yunus-Bek Yevkurov said after the meeting. “There is the list of persons involved the case and the actions to detain them will be soon taken.”
Yevkurov noted that the militant gang led by the Malgobek district’s Emir Artur Getagazhev and some other persons were involved in staging the terror act.
“It is not a secret and not the news that militant leader Doku Umarov is behind all this,” he said.
The terror act was staged in Ingushetia on Sunday, when Muslims in Russia and all over the world celebrated the end of the holy month of Ramadan. A suicide bomber blew himself up at the funeral for a police officer who was shot dead the night before by militants in Russia’s North Caucasus, killing eight policemen and wounding 15 others.
The meeting brought together chief investigators from Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia to discuss recent terror acts in the North Caucasus.
