MOSCOW, November 7 (Itar-Tass) — Two militants and their female accomplice were destroyed in a special operation in Dagestan's town of Khasavyurt on Wednesday, a representative of the National Antiterrorist committee told Itar-Tass.
"Three gangsters /Ramazan Nurlayev, Vadim Kadymov and Zamira Tutusheva/, holed up in an apartment in Datuyev Street, were neutralized as they offered active armed resistance during the attempt to detain them," the NAK official said.
A search of the apartment found an assault rifle, a pistol, grenades and many rounds of ammunition.
One of the police officers suffered concussion during the special operation. The operation began at around 7 o'clock in the morning.
The militants belong to the so-called Khasavyurt gang. They are Ramazan Nurlayev, b.1981, a native of the village of Mutsalaul, and Vadim Kadymov, nicknamed Khamza, b.1985.
Nurlayev is brother of Tagi Nurlayev, head of the Khasavyurt gang killed in the summer of 2012. "He was trained at Khattab's camps in Chechnya, studied demolition techniques, and fought against federal troops as a member of the gang lead by Nasib Isakov," the NAK said.
Kadymov is a citizen of Kazakhstan and active member of the Khasavyurt gang.
Taking part in the negotiations with Zamira was her former husband. The tenants of the apartment house blocked by police have been evacuated.
Police talked her into letting them evacuate her children, a two-year-old girl and a five-year-old son. The militants and the woman, identified by her first name Zamira, refused to surrender, fired on police and were destroyed, the NAK said.
