DUSHANBE, June 1. /TASS/. Tajikistan’s Prosecutor-General’s Office has opened a criminal case against the former commander of a special purpose police unit Gulmurod Khalimov who joined the Islamic State terrorist group under the "Mercenary activities" article, the sources in the country’s State Committee for National Security (SCNS) told TASS on Monday. The Tajik intelligence agencies also confirmed that Khalimov had been put on the Interpol wanted list.
The sources noted that "the authoritative bodies had accurate information on Khalimov being with the Islamic State group in Syria where he had traveled via Turkey at the end of April together with his two closest associates." "Their identities are being established," one source told TASS.
According to the information provided by the State Committee for National Security, "to date Tajikistan’s Prosecutor-General’s Office had opened criminal cases against 417 citizens of the country on the mercenary activities charges."
