DUSHANBE, September 11. /TASS/. Tajikistan’s citizens have detained and handed over to police 18 members of an armed gang of former deputy defense minister Abulhalim Nazarzoda, the country’s Interior Ministry said on Friday.
More than 130 pieces of weapons and ammunition have been seized "due to the citizens’ assistance." A total of seven members of the group have surrendered to police, the ministry said.
Another 17 active members of Nazarzoda’s gang were detained in special operation in the Ramit Gorge of the Vahdat district and three others surrendered to police, the ministry said on Thursday. Four members of the group were killed in the operation.
