Five persons detained during a special operation and suspected of plotting terror acts are charged. One of them, Magomed Amatkhanov, has admitted that he stayed in Syria and was a member of the "Islamic State" (IS), banned in Russia by court.

Law enforcers suggest that Magomed Amatkhanov, one of the suspects, went to Syria, but his family members spent a lot of time and money, found him and managed to return him home.

"According to the version of the detainee himself, to leave the IS, Magomed Amatkhanov had to say that his wife was very ill and his relatives insisted on his presence at home," explained the source.

The "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was told by a relative of one of the suspects that he treats the case as fabricated.
