Two members of illegal armed groups have been detained in Moscow on suspicion of staging a number of attacks on police officers, police sources told Itar-Tass on Friday. The suspects, a resident of Dagestan and a person coming from the Grozny district of Chechnya were detained at Moscow’s Belorussky railway station in a search operation conducted by officers of the Centre T of the Russian Interior Ministry and operatives of the main police department for the Southern federal district. According to the investigation, the detained are involved in an attack in which fire was opened from assault rifles and grenade launchers on the building of the Kurchaloi district police department in Chechnya in September 2001, as a result of which three policemen were killed and another 10 wounded. “Besides, they are suspected of staging an armed attack on the Vedeno district police department in October 2001 in the course of which machine guns, Kalashnikov assault rifles and five Makarov pistols were stolen,” the police source said. In the view of the investigation, the detained persons are also involved in an armed attack on the Avtury settlement in the Shali district of Chechnya in June 2004. Three officers of the Chechen president’s security service were killed then and another two were wounded. Aside from this, the detained are suspected of firing at officers of the OMON special police force of the Lipetsk region in the Staropromyslovsky district of Grozny in June 2006.
