SYZRAN, May 2. /TASS/. The court has arrested for two months three suspects in the murder of deputy chief of staff of the Interior Ministry’s Main directorate in Russia's southern Samara region Andrei Gosht and his family, Syzran district prosecutor Yevgeny Irkha has told reporters.
"The district prosecutor’s office has affirmed the investigators’ motion on choosing an arrest for two months as a pretrial measure for the detainees. The three arrested persons are natives of Azerbaijan. The suspects asked the court not to arrest them. Charges have not been brought against the detainees yet,’ Irkha said.
The court meeting was held behind closed doors.
Russian Interior Ministry spokeswoman Irina Volk earlier told TASS that police and investigators had obtained comprehensive evidence of the suspects’ involvement in the crime, including their confession, objects and documents relevant for the criminal proceedings. The suspects were arrested on April 30 and overnight on May 1.
In the morning of April 24, six persons - two men and four women - were found murdered in a private house in the village of Ivashevka in Syzran district of the Samara region. One of the men was identified as Andrei Gosht, a deputy chief of the Samara region interior headquarters. The others were members of his family.
Gosht and his family were attacked while sleeping and died from head trauma caused by a blunt weapon, the Investigative Committee reported. The survivor girl aged seven, the police officer’s niece, was taken to hospital in a serious condition.
Charges will be brought against the defendants after face-to-face questioning.
