A brother has stabbed his sister to death for dishonouring the family after she appeared as a victim on a police video about a raid on a ‘Casanova’ gang that blackmailed married women with claims they cheated on their husbands.
Local media report the body of Elizaveta Evloeva, 33, was found with three stab wounds in the city of Nazran in the Republic of Ingushetia in south-western Russia.
Local media report she had been spotted by cops entering a flat with a suspected member of a local gang named Isa Altemirov and two other people, one man and one woman, who were not named in reports.
Altemirov reportedly belonged to the ‘Caucasian Casanovas’ gang in the area that had been blackmailing married women by threatening to tell their husbands they had been cheating.
Reports state police followed the group into the flat and Altemirov then threw a grenade at the cops, but the explosive did not detonate. He then jumped from a fifth-floor window in order to escape the officers but fell to his death, according to reports.
The police officers then began recording themselves questioning the remaining witnesses in the flat, including Evloeva, as can be seen in the video.
The video was later posted online and when Evloeva’s brother Magomedbashir Mogushkov, 37, saw the video he was reportedly incensed that she had “dishonoured” the family and convinced she had been caught cheating.
He allegedly attacked her the next day, stabbing her three times, and killing her instantly.
The suspect is said to have handed himself into police and confessed his guilt to investigators immediately afterwards.
A criminal case under Article 105 “Murder” of the Russian Criminal Code was launched. Magometbashir could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
The faith of the victim remains unclear.
