MOSCOW, September 18 (Itar-Tass) - Investigators of Russia’s Investigative Committee have averted the explosion of a power transmission line tower at a village in Bashkortostan. They were investigating a criminal case against members of a terrorist gang.
Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass that in June 2013 a member of the criminal group - 35-year-old Ilnur Akhmetshin, who since 2006 was on the federal wanted list and was detained in Dagestan while trying to illegally cross the border of the Russian Federation, was charged with committing a series of terrorist attacks in various regions of Russia and other serious and extremely serious crimes.
“During the investigation of the criminal case against Akhmetshin, the investigators obtained information that at the end of 2004, with the purpose of committing a terrorist act, he had planted an improvised explosive device under a high-voltage power transmission line tower on the outskirts of the Stary Kalmash village in the Chekmagushevsky district of the Republic of Bashkortostan,” Markin said.
Officers of the Investigative Committee investigation department and Interior Ministry’s main department in the Volga Federal District have found this explosive device. It was defused and removed from the scene.
