MAKHACHKALA, October 30 (Itar-Tass) — The criminal case was opened over the murder of the mullah of a mosque in the Dagestani city Derbent as well as his relatives, a source in the Russian Investigation Committee told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The detectives found that the detectives have made several gunshots from the automatic firearms at 06:25 Moscow time on Tuesday in the residential area Aeroport in three men, aged 82, 49 and 50 years in a Toyota Corolla car. They died on gunshot wounds instantaneously. The attackers escaped in the car.
“According to the preliminary reports, killed Karimulla Ibragimov, 49, was a mullah of the local mosque,” the source said.
“The criminal case was opened under Article 105 Part 2 of the Criminal Code for murder of two and more people and under Article 222 Part 2 for illegal circulation of weapons,” the source said.
The investigation into the murder continues.
This is not the first attempt on the life of clergymen in Dagestan for the last few months.
So, last March imam of the Buinaksk central mosque Gitinomagomed Abdulgapurov and a policeman guarding him died in the blast of a homemade explosive device. Last June unidentified gunmen in masks broke in the rural mosque and gunned down imam Magomedkamil Gamzatov and a parishioner in Karamakhi in the Buinaksk district in Dagestan. In late August an influential religious figure Said Afandi of Chirkey was killed in the explosion of a female suicide bomber in the Dagestani village Chirkey. On October 14 the gunmen shot down imam of the local mosque Ismail Gadzhiyev in Uchkent, the Kumtorkali district.
