PYATIGORSK, September 24 (Itar-Tass) - Bekkhan Galayev, member of an armed gang making part of the criminal community Vilayat Galgaiche, was sentenced by the Supreme Court in the Russian North Caucasian Republic of North Ossetia to 13.5 years in a high security prison with the limitation of freedom for one year.
He was found guilty of masterminding a criminal community, banditry, the attempt on the life of a law enforcer, deliberate destruction of property and illegal circulation of weapons, the local branch of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office in the North Caucasian Federal District said on Tuesday.
“The detectives found that from October 2007 through November 2012 Galayev, joining an armed gang that is a branch of the criminal community Vilayat Galgaiche, was participating actively in heavy and heinous crimes in the North Caucasian republics of North Ossetia and Ingushetia,” the local prosecutor’s office said.
The bandits were shooting at the buildings of the prosecutor’s offices in Nazran and Nazran district in Ingushetia, the Nazran railway station, blasted a shop, where alcoholic drinks were on sale, attacked ten servicemen and 16 law enforcers, shooting at them or detonating home-made explosive devices. “The suicide bomber blasted a car staffed with explosives at a police station in North Ossetia on October 23, 2012,” the prosecutor’s office added.
Together with other members of the criminal community Galayev acquired illegally, stored, trafficked and used different types and models of firearms, explosives and explosive devices, including those home-made, in the crimes. He opened fire at the law enforcers in the detention in November 2012.
