YEKATERINBURG, June 22. /TASS/.Suspected hijackers of Yak-52 private plane from an aerodrome in Ishim, a town in southern Russia’s Tyumen region, have not yet been detained, senior assistant to head of Investigative Committee’s Urals investigative department for transport Natalya Gunkina told TASS on Monday.
"They [suspects] are in Sergiyev Posad [city in Moscow Region], they haven’t been detained yet. The issue of detaining those individuals is under consideration," Gunkina said.
According to earlier reports, two private planes - Gardan GY-80-160 and Yak-52 - took off without permission from an aerodrome in Ishim. A Yak-52 pilot later made emergency landing at an airdrome belonging to DOSAAF (Volunteer Society for Cooperation with the Army, Aviation, and Fleet) aviation and sports club in the town of Yalutorovsk, hitting engineering structures. The Yak-52 pilot then boarded the Gardan GY-80-160 plane and flew in an unknown direction.
Law enforcers say the suspects were heading toward Moscow, possibly through Perm near the Ural Mountains. The police later located suspects in hijacking the Yak-52 plane. Gubkina said they are currently in the Vladimir Region.
