GROZNY, October 18. /TASS/. An organiser of the blast that claimed lives of five police officers in Chechnya’s capital Grozny on October 5 was shot dead in the city on Saturday, a spokesman for the regional police told Tass.
“On Saturday an organiser of the blast in Grozny on October 5 was shot dead during an attempt to detain him in the city’s Staropomyslovsky district,” he said. “The 33-year-old man called Aslan Aliskhanov was a member of an illegal military group and was on the federal wanted list.”
He said that neither law enforcers nor civilians were hurt in the operation.
The explosion went off at about 5 pm, Moscow time, on October 5. Police officers found a home-made explosive device on a man walking through a metal detector at a scene of mass festivities in central Grozny. The terrorist blew himself up as the police tried to arrest him.
A criminal case was instituted on two charges - murder attempts on police officers and illegal circulation of firearms.
The terrorist was identified as Opti Mudarov, a 19-year-old resident of Grozny. The man was killed in the blast.
