MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - Major of the main Interior Ministry’s department in the North Caucasus Federal District was shot down by unidentified gunmen in the Dagestani city of Khasavyurt, spokesperson for Dagestan’s police Fatina Ubaidatova told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“Two unidentified gunmen have made several shots from unidentified models of firearms in a senior police officer, who was driving a Lada Granta car, at a house in Obyedinennaya Street. The police officer died of wounds at the murder scene,” she said. Ubaidatova noted that the killed police officer worked as an operative.
The murder of the policeman is most likely linked with his previous job as an operative in the police of Khasavyurt before his transfer to the North Caucasus main police department, a source in the republican law enforcement agencies told Itar-Tass.
The detectives have found 28 cartridge cases and four 9mm bullets, as well as blood samples and clothes at the murder scene. The criminal case was opened under three articles of the Russian Criminal Code for the attempt on the life of a law enforcer, illegal storage of weapons and deliberate destruction or damage of property.
