According to the press service of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, the operation led to the capture of a member of the bandit group terrorists Shamil Basayev.
According to the latest information, we are talking about Magomed Alkhanov. This militant, who is a native of the Chechen Republic, in 2000 participated in a terrorist attack on the positions of the 6th company of Pskov paratroopers in the Ulus-Kert region.
Alkhanov is involved in a number of criminal cases. In the near future, it is planned to bring charges against the militant detained during the special operation of committing several grave crimes.
