Russian committee demands arrest of other suspects

Mar 25 (Prensa Latina) Russia's investigation committee today demanded the arrest of three other suspects involved in the terrorist attack on the Crocus City Hall concert hall in Moscow province.

‘We received three more files related to Islomov Arminjon, Islomov Dilovar and Islomov Isroil, two of whom were formally charged, while the third one is still considered a suspect,’ the court said Monday. Earlier, the Basmani district court ordered the arrest of four other suspects in the attack: Mujamadsobir Faizov, Shamsidin Fariduni, Dalerdzhon Mirzoev and Saidakrami Rachabalizoda.

Mirzoev and Rachabalizoda have already admitted their guilt.

On March 22, a group of camouflage-clad gunmen shot at a crowd gathered at the Crocus City Hall concert in the city of Krasnogorsk, in the northwestern outskirts of Moscow province, just a few minutes before the start of a concert by the Russian rock band Picnic.

The shooting was followed by a fire, which, according to the Emergencies Ministry, affected an area of almost 13 000 square meters.

According to the latest official data, the terrorist attack resulted in 137 dead and about 180 wounded.
