MOSCOW, May 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Terrorists, involved in the assassination attempt on the mufti, as well as in other crimes have been overpowered in Tatarstan (Russia’s republic in the Volga Federal District), the information centre of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAC) told ITAR-TASS.
Overnight to May 1, Alfa unit officers of the FSB Special Task Center took measures to suppress the bandits’ criminal activity. They blocked a garage and the bandits who were inside were advised to surrender, but they refused. “Meanwhile, one of the criminals tried to escape though a trapdoor, he fired several shots on the law enforcement officers and hurled a grenade at them. He was destroyed by return fire,” the NAC said.
The second malefactor in the garage was lethally injured as a homemade explosive device went off.
“The bandits have been preliminarily identified. They are Rais Mingaleyev, born in 1976, and Beslan Nazipov, born in 1979, wanted for terrorist activity in the Republic of Tatarstan. They were the masterminds and perpetrators of a number of terrorism crimes, including an assassination attempt staged in Kazan in 2012 on Mufti Faizov of the Spiritual Department of Muslims of Tatarstan, the murder of head of the department’s education unit Yakupov, as well as a number of other terrorist actions,” the NAC said.
