One of the brothers — Kazim — owned a cafe. According to the investigation, Kamil Abdulazhanov formed a group of ISIL supporters and sponsored one of the terrorists, who was treated in Turkey after being injured in Syria. The militant, according to the investigators, was the main protagonist, the initiator of the terrorist attacks.
