The criminal, who killed a militiaman in Moscow and then hid himself in the North Caucasus for nearly six years, will be brought to Moscow. As the Russian law enforcement bodies reported, Murat Khamchiyev, 43, from Ingushetia (a North Caucasian republic of the Russian Federation bordering on Chechnya) was detained in North Ossetia (also a North Caucasian republic of the Russian Federation) in the course of the operational search measures. Using numerous ties of relationship, Khamchiyev managed to get documents on another name and start to work as a departmental chief of the State Committee for the Affairs of Refugees and Forced Migrants of Ingushetia. Khamchiyev and a certain Akhilgov were detained on August 19, 1995 on suspicion of robbery and extortion with regard to a citizen of Vietnam and were brought to the militia of the North Eastern administrative district of Moscow. On the night of August 19-20, having taken advantage of the situation when only one militiaman remained in the premise (others went to the place of incident), Khamchiyev unexpectedly attacked him and inflicted several physical injuries, as a result of which the militiaman died. Then the criminal took the militiaman's identification certificate and pistol and disappeared. Khamchiyev was included in the federal wanted list. As a result of the operational search measures it was found out that he was hiding himself in the North Caucasus, but it took a lot of time to find him.
