MOSCOW, October 3. /TASS/. A court in Dagestan, in Russia’s North Caucasus, has sentenced a gunman, who killed a National Guard officer last summer, to 24 years behind bars, Investigative Committee Spokeswoman Svetlana Petrenko said on Tuesday.
Artur Bekbolatov, a member of an illegal armed militant gang, had been trained to carry out a terrorist act, the court said. On July 10, 2016 Bekbolatov and other gang members attacked National Guardsman Magomed Nurbagandov in a forest near Sergokal, in southern Dagestan.
Nurbagandov was held at gunpoint by the armed attackers and was filmed by them before they murdered him. In his final message, staring straight into the camera, he told his colleagues to "keep on carrying out your duty, brothers," immediately after that he was shot dead. He was posthumously awarded the title Hero of Russia.
Investigators also found that in August 2016, Bekbolatov and other gang members attacked two traffic police officers on the Kavkaz federal highway near the city of Izberbash.
