MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not have information about organizers of explosions near Makhachkala that targeted an Interior Ministry convoy, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.

"Unfortunately, I do not have any information about this but this is probably a question for our law enforcement agencies," Peskov said when asked to comment on media reports claiming that the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization banned in Russia took responsibility for the blast.

A criminal case was launched in the incident. On March 29, at around 8:30pm local time, two police cars drove into an explosive device near Makhachkala, the capital city of Russia’s North Caucasian republic of Dagestan. One person was killed and two more were injured in the blast.

A source in regional security agencies told TASS on Wednesday that militants of a local gang are linked to the convoy blast.

"Militants from the so-called Hushet gang (based in Novy Hushet village in the suburbs of Makhachkala) are suspected of committing this crime," the source said.

According to the source, it is being clarified whether members of this gang pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization banned in Russia.
