MAKHACHKALA, May 4. /TASS/. Three gunmen, including leader of the Kizilyurtovskaya gang, have been killed in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAK) said on Wednesday.
Umar Sabuyev and two other gunmen were neutralized late on Tuesday in an operation on the Kavkaz highway near the Stalskoye village of Dagestan’s Kizilyurtovsky district. The incident occurred as police attempted to stop a car. The gunmen inside it opened fire at the officers and were killed by return fire. Their bodies have been identified.
"The gunmen are linked to a whole number of terrorism-related crimes - attempts at life and murders of law enforcers, including the former head of district police department and district police officer, and also extorting large sums of money from entrepreneurs," the committee said.
Several grenades, an assault rifle, a gun and rounds of ammunition have been found at the scene. No casualties among civilians or police have been reported. The investigation is ongoing.
