GROZNY, March 3. /TASS/. Three participants of illegal armed formations have been eliminated in Chechnya over the past ten days, head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov told reporters on Tuesday.

"Three members of illegal armed groups have been eliminated, several others were detained. But the so-called 'emir of the lowland' was on the loose and went into hiding. When investigators spotted and encircled the man, we offered him negotiations. At first, he wouldn’t agree, but then I joined the talks, and we discussed everything. He had the only condition — everything should proceed within the law. I told him that it couldn’t be otherwise", the Chechen leader said.

Kadyrov assured Zelimkhan Magomadov, who had surrendered to law enforcers, that he could count on a fair trial within the bounds of the law.

"Now he is an important witness, as it’s of great significance for us to know what the situation in the mountains and in the lowlands is. Magomadov was hiding in the mountains, he was the proxy of warlord Khamzat Bityukaev. Glory to Almighty Allah, he surrendered and now actively cooperates with us. Our special task force is combing the mountains area in a security sweep in accordance with his tips", Kadyrov said.

Earlier, the Chechen leader said that three militants had been killed after an attempted terrorist attack in a Chechen village.
