A senior Ingush prosecutor has been detained on suspicion of involvement in an armed attack on two local civilians on August 22, an Ingush law enforcement source told Interfax.
"Prosecution official Adam Uzhakhov and one more local resident have been detained on suspicion of committing this crime," the source said.
The detainees are currently being subjected to investigative procedures, he said.
It was reported earlier that the Investigative Committee department for Ingushetia opened a criminal case into an attack on a man and a woman in central Nazran, in which the victims suffered gunshot wounds and were hospitalized.
The attackers fled from the scene. The incident occurred near a private house on Suvorov Street on August 22.
