Russia's "Natsgvardia" identifies man suspected of killing retired law enforcer in Grozny

Ruslan M., detained in the case of the murder of a pensioner of the Chechen Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) in Grozny on May 26, is a staff member of the Chechen police and not a fighter of the special unit for the National Guard (known as "Natsgvardia") of Russia. This has been clarified by the press service of the North-Caucasian District of the troops of the National Guard of Russia.

The fact that on May 26, a pensioner of the Chechen MIA was shot and killed in his own house in a village of the Chechen capital was reported to the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent by acquaintances of the killed person. According to them, a son of the wife of the retired MIA's officer from her first marriage was detained on suspicion of killing his stepfather. The suspect has allegedly been a fighter of the National Guard of Russia.

The detainee has confessed that he had shot from his service weapon at his stepfather because of their domestic quarrel, and he was arrested, the press service of the North-Caucasian District of the National Guard of Russia reports.

According to the local residents, the murder could be provoked by a case of blood feud.
