The Investigative Committee instituted criminal proceedings and opened an investigation... Еще into the murder case. Law enforcement officers are already at the site. The city has introduced an 'Intercept' plan to search for the getaway car.
Eldzharkiev had been a target of previous assassination attempts. In January, unknown people fired several shots at his car using a machine gun on the road from Chechnya to Ingushetia, a few kilometers from the border post. That time Eldzharkiev was not injured, but three police officers accompanying him in the car were wounded, one of whom subsequently died.
