MOSCOW, November 13 (Itar-Tass) — Germany has extradited to Russia Khabib Umakhanov, wanted by Interpol on suspicion of murder of a Dagestan district official in 2009, the press service of the Interpol Russia bureau told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The investigators ascertained that in September 2009, Umakhanov, together with two accomplices, murdered the head of the republic's Khasavyurt district in Moscow. The criminals sprayed automatic fire at the official's car and fled. The district official was killed on the spot and his guard was seriously wounded.
Police said Umakhanov then fled Russia and could hide in the Middle East or in a European country.
"He was put on the Interpol wanted list in July 2010. German police detained him in Berlin in June 2012. "On November 10, the German law-enforcement bodies met Russian prosecutors' petition to extradite Umakhanov," the press service said.
The extradition was completed on Tuesday. "The investigators will check Umakhanov for involvement in the operation of illegal paramilitary formations in the North Caucasus and the commission of acts of terror," Interpol Russia officials said.
