As the Chechen Interior Ministry reports, the militant was killed in the village of Starye Atagi, Grozny district, when the Chechen special force police and the units of the federal troops were conducting selective checks.
A cache with classified Arab documents, three sub-machine guns, grenades and ammunition were found in the house of the militant.
There are no losses among the participants in the operation.
According to certain sources, Abu Tariq is involved in the murder of the Salikhanov family in November, the family which was highly esteemed in Starye Atagi.
