Man suspected of murdering Ingush CCE chief escapes to Chechnya, investigators report

A suspected assassinator of Ibragim Eldjarkiev, the chief of the Centre for Combating Extremism (CCE) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of Ingushetia, could escape to Chechnya, the "Baza" Telegram channel reports.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on November 2, Ibragim Eldjarkiev was shot dead in Moscow. His brother Akhmed Eldjarkiev, a doctor from a Moscow hospital, also fell victim to the attack. The law enforcement bodies put on the wanted list main suspect Kartoev, a 46-year-old native of Ingushetia, a member of the influential Ingush Batal-Khadji community. Earlier, it has been reported that the search for the suspect is underway in Ingushetia.

According to sources, the murder of Ibragim Eldjarkiev could be the result of blood feud amid his conflict with members of the Batal-Khadji community, one of which leaders, Ibragim Belkharoev, was killed in 2018.

The main version of the murder is the same, that is, "a blow-up provoked by the death of a person from the Belkharoev clan," the "Baza" Telegram channel reports. It explains that "the Belkharoev clan was divided into two wings, one of which was under the control of the Chechen authorities, while the other interacted with former Ingush leader Evkurov." According to the Telegram channel, Ibragim Belkharoev contacted the authorities of Chechnya. "After his death, a number of top-ranking officials from the Chechen administration had serious questions for Ibragim Eldjarkiev, the chief of the CCE of Ingushetia: it was him who was considered the customer of the assassination," the "Baza" Telegram channel reports.
