Officials: Suspected Tajik men visited Turkey, showing signs of torture

On Sunday, a terrorist attack began at the Basmannyi courthouse in Moscow during the interrogation of suspects. 137 people were killed and more than 180 injured on the outskirts of Moscow on Friday night when a group of gunmen opened fire at the Crocus City Hall before a concert. The men shot in the concert hall, then left the building and set it on fire. The suspects fled the scene, but on Saturday morning, the Russian security service FSB said they had arrested eleven suspects, four of whom are suspected of having participated in the act themselves at the concert hall.

Four of the terrorist suspects are said to be citizens of Tajikistan. The president of Tajikistan Emomali Rahman condemned the attacks and claimed that his country is taking all necessary measures to prevent such incidents from happening again. Shortly after the act, jihadist Isis-K claimed responsibility for the attack and stated that they will continue their activities in Afghanistan and Central Asia.

The suspects were brought to the Investigative Committee headquarters in Moscow on Sunday. Claims about their exact locations have varied from Hatsun, which is located near Bryansk, about a hundred kilometers from Ukraine and Belarus borders to Teply, located right next to Belarusian border village. It is more than 400 kilometers from Moscow to where they were arrested. Russia claimed shortly after that perpetrators were fleeing towards Ukraine or Belarus. Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova hinted that Western countries use ISIS as an excuse for their protection routes in Kiev, according to Reuters news agency reports.

Videos of arrest and interrogation situation began spreading on social media, showing alleged torture of suspects by members of Russian Social Chamber and Vladimir Rogov’s representative for Russian occupation administration in Ukraine on his Telegram channel on Saturday. The suspects will be held in pretrial detention for at least two months. Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov declined to comment on terrorism investigation allegations and ISIS involvement in attack but confirmed that there are plans to bring those responsible to justice while denying rumors about restoring death penalty
