Mother of deceased Gudermes woman apologizes to her son-in-law

The mother of the 23-year-old woman, who died in Gudermes, has treated the accusations against her the son-in-law as unjustified and asked him to forgive her, the "Grozny" ChGTRK (Chechen State TV and Radio Company) wrote in its Instagram page.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that a message was circulated in social networks that on June 12, in the city of Gudermes, a husband killed his 23-year-old wife. After a resonance in social networks, the Chechen Prosecutor began a check. On June 20, the body of the deceased woman was exhumed; her mother stated that she saw bruises on her daughter's body. But on June 23, during a meeting with Ramzan Kadyrov, she apologized for these words.

The deceased woman tried to leave her husband because of beatings, relatives of the deceased assert. Earlier, the woman's mother said that they were trying to fence off her daughter's husband, since he is a military serviceman.

The mother said that she had accused her son-in-law of killing her daughter "because of rumours." According to her story, her daughter died a natural death, says the message posted in the Instagram page of the "Grozny" ChGTRK on June 27.

"She learned about this after a long inquiry conducted by law enforcement bodies and an examination of the body [of her daughter]. The woman apologized to the young man and urged not to spread rumours about the murder of her daughter and the fault of the family [of her husband]," say the message.
