Relatives of men killed in Babayurt District claim kidnapping of them

Anvar Ismayilov and Rasul Radjabov, who were killed on October 4 in the counterterrorist operation (CTO) area in the Babayurt District of Dagestan, were not involved in the armed underground and were kidnapped on the eve of their execution. This was reported by their relatives. Instagram users doubt that Adjiniyazov and Ibragimov, killed earlier, had connections with militants.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on October 2, two persons were shot dead in the Babayurt District. According to the law enforcers' version, they were involved in the murder of a district police inspector. The killed men were identified as Djumageldi Adjiniyazov, born in 1988, and Kamal Ibragimov, born in 1988.

On October 4, two other men were killed in the Babayurt District. According to a source, they were involved in the murder of a district police inspector in the Kizlyar District. The killed men were natives of the village of Novogeorgievka in the Tarumovka District, the "Interfax" reports.

Anvar Ismayilov and Rasul Radjabov, killed on October 4, were kidnapped in Kizilyurt on October 3, the "Kavkaz.Realii" reports with reference to their relatives.

On the page "Voice of Dagestan" in Instagram, Internet users suggest that Anvar Ismayilov and Rasul Radjabov could become casual victims.

The user gadji_255 noted that one of the killed men had a smooth-bore gun and suggested the men went hunting.
