The Azeri State Committee for Refugees has released a statement on the two Azeri detainees and one Azerbaijani killed in Kelbajar, Turan reports.
The source says that the photos received by the International Committee of the Red Cross demonstrate that the man killed by Armenians is citizen of Azerbaijan Hasan Hasanov. The members of his family identified him. The ICRC also held talks on the transfer of the body, but they were told about the need to provide additional identification materials. The State Committee for Refugees also reports that issues of the return of Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev, the other citizens of Azerbaijan, as well as the transfer of Hasanov's dead body are under the control of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.
To note, the Prosecutor General's Office of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic has brought criminal charges against the Azeri raiders detained near Karvachar in early July. The press service of the Office reports that two Azeris were detained while attempting to cross the border last week: Gulin Shahbaz Jalaloglu, who had a silenced Kalashnikov assault rifle, a Makarov pistol and two frag grenades, and Dilham Gardashhan, a Kalashnikov assault rifle and a Makarov pistol. The third Azeri showed resistance and was killed. Both Jalaloglu and Gardashhan have been arrested and are facing the charge of illegal crossing of state border. A special investigation group is inquiring into the case. The Armenian side also suffered losses: Major Sargis Abrahamyan (born in 1972) was killed, a woman, Karina Davtyan (born in 1977) was wounded, and 17-year-old Smbat Tsakanyan was kidnapped and killed.
