More than six kilometers of illegally set fishing nets were found and destroyed in Issyk-Kul lake during a raid. The State Inspectorate for Environmental and Technical Safety of Kyrgyzstan reported.

A resident of Balykchi engaged in fishing was detained on Chu river, and a resident of Semiz-Bel village with a firearm — in Kuuaky area. He did not have appropriate permits. The weapon was seized. The materials were sent to Kochkor District Department of Internal Affairs.
