Militants in Chechnya are attacking locals who have received compensation for destroyed houses, the apparatus of the Chechen administration head told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.
A representative of the administration said that "in the village of Alkhan-Kala of the Grozny district alone two such crimes were registered last week." Earlier, criminals of a band led by a certain Galayev killed a man who had refused to give them the 60,000 roubles (approximately $2,000) he got as compensation. For the same reasons bandits kidnapped a girl in Alkhan-Kala on April 22nd, the administration representative added.
He stressed that "the people are concerned about the increasingly frequent criminal attacks and intend to appeal to the authorities with a request to ensure their security."
