Brother of alleged terrorist Azimov deported from Kyrgyzstan to Russia

«Akram Azimov, the elder brother of the alleged organizer of the terrorist attack in the metro of St. Petersburg Abror Azimov, was deported from Kyrgyzstan to Russia," the younger brother of the suspect, Bilal Azimov, told Interfax.

According to him, Akram was taken from Osh to Moscow. «He was detained in Osh and deported to Russia, since he is a Russian citizen. Akram has to be operated in Osh, he had a cyst in his head," Bilal added, noting that their father intended to hire lawyers for his sons and turned to human rights activists.

As Bilal told, the older brothers bought a land plot in Jalal-Abad, in the south of Kyrgyzstan, and wanted to start building a house this year. «Akram arrived earlier. We waited for Abror to begin construction," Bilal Azimov added.

According to the neighbors, Abror’s grandfather was a well-known local theologian, worked for many years as an imam in the mosques of the region, and the mother, Vazira Azimova, studied in a madrasah. In general, the family adhered to traditional religious views and has never been radical.

Recall, the location of Akram Azimov is not known. As the airport of Osh reported, no one with such name flew from the southern capital to Moscow in recent days.

The regional department of the State National Security Committee (GKNB) stated to 24.kg news agency that they had actually interrogated Akram Asimov as a witness on April 15 and released at 7 pm.

Abror Azimov partially admitted his guilt in organizing the explosion in the St. Petersburg metro on April 3. Victims of the terrorist attack were 14 people, more than 50 were injured.
