Ingushetia reports kidnapping of three Aushev clan members

In Ingushetia, on October 27, power agents cordoned a street in Surkhakhi village, conducted searches and kidnapped three young men-members of the Aushev clan.

The oppositional website "Ingushetia.Org" reports that people in masks who operated in Surkhakhi village gave no explanations, presented no documents, having referred only Rustambek Zyazikov, brother of the President of Ingushetia.

Aushevs' houses were searched and three young men were taken to unknown place. Besides, two cars were hijacked.

There were no confirmations of this news from other sources.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on September 18, 2007, at the exit from Grozny towards Ingushetia, two residents of Surkhakhi village, Nazran District of Ingushetia, - Aushev, Magomed Maksharipovich, born in 1985, and Aushev, Magomed Osmanovich, born 1982, were kidnapped.

Father of one of them, Maksharip Aushev (one of leaders of the Ingush opposition), has managed to trace the kidnappers and establish not only the exact place where the detainees were kept but also the surnames of the authors of that "special operation".

Magomed Khazbiev, Maksharip's supporter and head of the Nationwide Rally of Ingush Nation, has reported that Maksharip Aushev, the current owner of the independent Internet portal "Ingushetia.Ru" (now "Ingushetia.Org"), whose house is searched on a regular basis, is under threat of physical liquidation.
