MAKHACHKALA, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - Criminal proceedings have been instituted over the death of a Russian investigator, who died after a car bomb explosion in Makhachkala, the capital of Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, on Thursday.
The local Investigative Committee said an explosive device attached to the floor of a Hyundai Sonata car with went off at 08:30 Moscow time, killing a 36-year-old investigator of the Leninsky district investigation department of Makhachkala, who was at the wheel.
“The man was seriously wounded. He died in hospital,” the Investigative Committee said.
Criminal proceedings were opened on four counts - infringement on the life of an investigator, illegal circulation of firearms by an organized group, illegal making of an explosive device and intentional destruction of or damage to property under aggravating circumstances.
“The detectives are probing into all possible versions, including the investigator’s professional activity,” the investigative committee said, adding that was not the first case of an attack against its staff members related with their professional activities.
Since the moment it was founded the Investigative Committee's detectives have repeatedly faced threats in retaliation for their highly-principled attitude to investigating crimes and making procedural decisions. Of late, such threats began to materialize ever more often, especially in the territory of the Southern and North Caucasus federal districts of Russia.
“However, despite their daily exposure to risks our investigators will continue doing their duty honestly and professionally as always. We will provide all necessary assistance to the family of the killed investigator,” the Investigative Committee said.
