Suspects of killing a fan arrested in absentia and put on wanted list in Rostov Region

Today, the Lenin District Court of Rostov-on-Don has arrested in absentia two suspects of murdering Alexander Terekhov, the Investigatory Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF) reports.

On March 28, at the Moll "Babylon" in Rostov-on-Don, a fight burst out, in which local residents Nikita Kapliev and Alexander Terekhov were injured. Later, Terekhov died on the way to hospital from his wounds. According to his friends, he was killed by natives of the Caucasus; however, investigators deny the origin of the conflict on the basis of ethnic hatred.

According to the investigation, two other members of the fight were N. Kharchilava, who was supposedly armed with a knife, and G. Mnatsakanyan. They are announced as wanted, the website of the ICRF reports.

Dmitry Taneev, the boss of the Rostov police, told at today's press conference that there is reason to believe that the parties of the fight had known each other; and Terekhov was killed in a domestic quarrel, the "Rostov.ru" reports.
