In Ingushetia, head of children's dancing ensemble wounded
In the city of Malgobek, Ingushetia, unidentified persons have heavily wounded the art director of the children's dancing ensemble "Zori Ingushetii". He received a wound in his abdominal cavity, and is currently operated on.
"At about a midnight, unidentified persons have opened fire on Zurab Dzhavakhishvili, art director of the children's dancing ensemble 'Zori Ingushetii', who was on his way home. With gunshot wounds he was hospitalized to the Central District Hospital," a source in the law enforcement bodies of the Malgobek District has reported.
Currently, militia units have been alerted, an operative-investigatory group examines the scene of the crime, and the criminals are being searched, as the "Interfax-Yug" reports.
"It's hard to say what made them commit this crime, since Dzhavakhishvili is known in Malgobek as the person who teaches children to dance," the law enforcement bodies have stated. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ingushetia asserts that the crime was aimed at destabilization of the situation in the Republic, as the ITAR-TASS reports.
