GROZNY, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov said the person guilty of the incident in the town of Pugachyov, Saratov region, in which a Chechen native killed a local resident, should be punished.
"The culprit should be punished; each must answer for his actions," Kadyrov told reporters. It was a domestic incident; there was no ethnic issue involved, he added.
Meanwhile, the Investigative Committee /SK/ said experienced investigators from Moscow would conduct the probe into the murder. Criminal proceedings were opened against a 16-year-old Chechen, who is accused of murder.
On July 6, a row occurred between the suspect and a 20-year-old local resident which escalated into a fight. The adolescent who had been carrying a lancet, inflicted various cuts on his opponent. The local resident was rushed to hospital where he later died.
"Investigators and forensic experts of the SK central office will carefully look into the circumstances of the incident, including the motives behind the crime, the conditions that contributed to its commission, as well as other reasons that caused the mass protests by the local residents," the SK underlined.
According to the regional government, the situation in Pugachyov has been calm since Tuesday morning.
"There aren’t' any rallies or marches in the streets; life is pacing routinely, people are going to work and about their business," the press service of the regional government told Tass.
Deputy governor Denis Fadeyev has been in town for two days already. He is maintaining close contact with Pugachyov's public, the directors of law-enforcement agencies and representatives of ethnic communities. Some reports said head of Chechnya's office in t he Volga Federal District Said-Akhmed Elesov is staying in town too. He has been making efforts towards normalizing the situation.
On Sunday, governor Valery Radayev met with Pugachyov residents. In the course of the two-hour meeting, he assured the locals that the investigation into the murder of Ruslan Marzhanov, 20, by a Chechen adolescent would be public and fair.
