MOSCOW, February 12 (Itar-Tass) - Law-enforcement agents detained five persons suspected of killing the sons of a Dagestan police officer in the village of Beledzhi, Derbent district.
"Police detained five suspected killers of the children in an operation. They are being questioned," the press service of the Russian Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass.
"At around 21:45, Moscow time, on February 11, a police Sergeant, after a visit to his neighbors' together with his wife and daughters, returned home to find the bodies of his sons, aged 9, and 11, with stab wounds to the neck and stomach.
"The killers stole jewelry and some 300,000 roubles from the Sergeant's home," the Interior Ministry said.
Criminal proceedings were opened over murder of two or more persons and robbery.
Meanwhile, the regional department of the Investigative Committee /SK/ did not confirm the detention of five suspects.
