The chieftain of a Chechen illegal armed unit has been murdered by his own son, RIA Novosti was told at the regional anti-terrorist operation headquarters.
According to the source, the body of Shamil Gadayev, 54, an active participant in illegal armed units, has been discovered in the Achkhoi-Martan District in the west of Chechnya. The body carried signs of a violent death. It was found out that Gadayev was murdered by his own son, Akhmet.
According to the main version, the father and the son had a fight over the money they had gained by drugs-trafficking, the headquarters spokesman reported.
At the moment, there is a search on for the suspected murderer.
It is known that Gadayev used to work for the so-called "State Security Department of Ichkeria" during the Maskhadov regime: he was the head of a group of kidnappers.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
