Family members of man killed in Gimry complain about his relatives' detention

Family members of Ramazan Kamilbegov, a resident of the village of Gimry killed in 2015, have complained about an unreasonable detention of his brother and sister. The family members are afraid of fabrication of criminal cases against the detainees.

According to advocate Eldar Temirkhanov, the Ramazan Kamilbegov's relatives say that "they were often visited by policemen who demanded from them to surrender weapons." On August 2, Gazimagomed Kamilbegov "was taken away by armed people in masks without any explanations."

According to the advocate, at the police station, they demanded from Gazimagomed Kamilbegov "to defame himself and confess storing weapons." On August 4, the man was released; however, he was again brought to the police station on August 6. The man is still being kept there, without any explanations of the reasons.

According to the family members of Gazimagomed Kamilbegov, he is a brother of Ramazan Kamilbegov, who was killed by law enforcers in 2015. Besides, a 24-year-old sister of Gazimagomed Kamilbegov was also detained, and she is threatened with criminal proceedings for aiding and abetting militants.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that at night on June 23, in the Untsukul District of Dagestan, a shootout occurred near the village of Gimry. As a result, two suspected militants and a soldier were killed. The killed men were identified as local residents Abdurakhman Abdurakhmanov and Ramazan Kamilbegov, both suspected of involvement in illegal armed formations (IAFs).

Meanwhile, the name of Ramazan Kamilbegov, a resident of the Gimry village, was born in 1979, was in the list of suspected militants who in 2008 voluntarily surrendered to the Dagestani Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA).
