ICRF's ID for Chechnya state absence of data about man's kidnapping in Grozny
The information about kidnapping of a young man, committed in early February in the Leninsky District of Grozny, was not confirmed, said the spokesman of the Investigating Department (ID) for Chechnya of the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF).
Let us remind you that the above kidnapping, committed on February 5 in Mitaev Street, was reported by some media and users of the mobile application WhatsApp.
"On the commission of the republic's prosecutor's office, a check has been made of the information about the alleged kidnapping committed in the Leninsky District of Grozny. This information was spread by some media and among WhatsApp users... The fact of kidnapping was not confirmed," the "Caucasian Knot" was told at the ID for Chechnya of the ICRF.
Let us note here that earlier a source from the Chechen Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) said that the republic's law enforcement bodies had no information about the incident.
Local residents said that they are worried about reports of disappearances, despite the fact that law enforcers treat them as disinformation.
