MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. An organiser of the blast that claimed lives of five police officers in Chechnya’s capital Grozny on October 5, who was shot dead in the city on Saturday, is proved to have been preparing the act of terror, spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee told TASS on Sunday.
“An organiser of the blast in Grozny on October 5, Aslan Aliskhanov on October 4 at a house of his acquaintances asked them to call for the police as he wanted to attempt their lives, but the people refused to do so,” the spokesman said.
Having received the refusal, the man blasted the house.
“The police found later on in the house two more self-made explosive devices, which the criminal had prepared to attempt lives of the police there,” he said, adding the police had defused the explosive devices found in the house.
Aliskhanov was put on the wanted list.
“On October 18, the police in an attempt to detain the man shot him dead,” he said.
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. The explosion claimed five police, and 13 got injured.
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.
