Law enforcers conduct searches near right defenders' in Karabulak

Law enforcers have cordoned off an area in the city of Karabulak, where the office of the human rights organization "Mashr" is located, and searched several houses, sources have reported. The operation was accompanied by interruptions of mobile internet throughout Ingushetia.

On November 28, at 5:00 a.m. Moscow time, law enforcers cordoned off the area in Karabulak, where the office of the human rights centre (HRC) "Mashr" is located. FSB agents searched several households and tried to get into the premises of the HRC and the house of the politician, Ruslan Mutsolgov, and human rights defender, Magomed Mutsolgov, sources from Ingushetia told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

Law enforcers failed to get into Ruslan Mutsolgov's house. "They spent some time near the house and left. They knocked on the neighbours, asked about the Mutsolgovs, about their whereabouts. Employees of the Karabulak ROVD (District Interior Division) also drove up to the house to find out what was happening. Then they all left," a resident of Karabulak, who wished to remain anonymous, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

The source has also noted that in the morning there was no internet connection in the republic – it was restored only at 10:00 a.m., when law enforcers had already removed the cordon in the city.

The "6th Portal" Telegram Channel has linked the Internet interruptions with law enforcers' operation in Karabulak.
