MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has sent a case of six members of a terrorist group that had planned a terror act on Red Square on December 31, 2010 to the Supreme Court of Dagestan.
“Viktor Grin, Russia’s deputy chief prosecutor, approved a criminal indictment against six members of the armed gang, including Islam Babayev, Shamil Baimambetov, Khairulla Magomedov, Artur Magomedov, Nazir Magomedov and Ravil Nasyrov,” Marina Gridneva, the spokesperson for the Prosecutor General’s Office, told Itar-Tass on Friday.
They voluntarily joined a criminal group of Ibragimkhalil Daudov in 2010. The same year, they perpetrated two terror strikes and attempted to stage three more in the territories of Dagestan, the Stavropol territory and Moscow. They had planned to blow up a bomb during New Year celebrations on Red Square on December 31, 2010.
On September 28, 2010, the group attacked the head of the extremism control department in the Jasmine caf· on Gamidov Street in Izberbash, Dagestan, his deputy and three civilians who were killed.
Islam Babayev, Shamil Baimambetov, Khairulla Magomedov and Ravil Nasyrov are also accused of illegal storage of weapons, ammunition and explosive devices, encroachment on the lives of servicemen (when they tried to plan a bomb on a railroad) and other unlawful actions.
Law enforcers liquidated some members of the armed group during anti-terror operations.
