Relatives of Hussein Betelgeriev claim police inaction

The police still have not started the search at the complaint of kidnapping in Grozny of bard Hussein Betelgeriev, his wife reports. On the day of his kidnapping, the bard wrote in a social network about the unrecognized Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, reports journalist Anastasia Kirilenko.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that since the evening of March 31, family members of Hussein Betelgeriev are unable to locate him. According to them, "two unidentified persons in uniform" took Hussein Betelgeriev away from home in the village of Kalinin. His wife Karima Betelgerieva reports that on April 2, she filed a complaint to the ROVD (District Interior Division) for the Leninsky District of Grozny.

Hussein Betelgeriev is a poet, writer, and composer. He is a member of the Union of Writers of Russia.

Karima Betelgerieva has emphasized that her husband had no conflicts or enemies. According to her, he experienced stress because of his dismissal from the Chechen State University, where he worked for 40 years.

The Betelgeriev's pages in Facebook contain a lot of comments that officials might not like, reports the website of the Chechen Office of the Radio Liberty ("Marsho"). It is noted that the Betelgeriev's page posts a flag of the unrecognized Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.

Meanwhile, the kidnapping of Hussein Betelgeriev could be related to the fact that he had ignored the call to come to the rally in Grozny on March 23, devoted to the anniversary of the adoption of the Chechen Constitution.
