MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. Moscow’s Lefortovsky court has arrested two members of Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami terrorist organization on suspicion of organizing the group’s activities in Moscow.
"The court has granted a petition by Federal Security Service and sanctioned arrest until December 13 of Abdukayum Mahsudov and Obidzhon Dzhurabayev," Lefortovsky court’s press secretary Yulya Skotnikova told TASS on Tuesday.
A source in security agencies told TASS that suspects were detained in Moscow on October 19. As members of Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami terrorist organization banned in Russia, they "were involved in promoting the idea of universal Islamization and building Islamic State Caliphate on the Russian territory, as well as recruiting new members to the organization."
The source added that eight cell phones were seized from the suspects, along with more than 10 SIM cards, laptop, tablet, several bank cards, two fake passports, and large amounts of extremist literature.
