In Dagestan, the head of the village of Rubas in the Derbent district, Hajikurban Bayrambegov, was shot dead. The suspect in the murder has already been detained and confessed to the crime. A criminal case has been opened on the fact of the murder, according to the UK.

"Investigators of the Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia in the Republic of Dagestan initiated a criminal case against a 58-year-old local resident suspected of committing the murder of the head of the rural settlement of Rubas under Part 1 of Article 222, paragraph "b" of Part 2 of Article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (murder of a person in connection with the implementation of official activities by this person, illegal acquisition and storage of weapons)," the regional Investigative Committee of the Investigative Committee said in a statement.

The attack on the head of the village took place at noon on May 31. The Investigative Committee of the Republic notes that Bayrambegov was shot dead on the highway of the FAD "Kavkaz". According to local media, the killer was waiting for the head of the village near his house.

The network got video from surveillance cameras that captured the moment of the attack. The video shows how Bayrambegov walks down the street - when he caught up with the Zhiguli parked on the side of the road near the road, a man got out of the car with a sawed-off shotgun in his hands. The attacker went to Bayrambegov and fired one shot in the chest area.

After the shot, the head of the village fell to the ground, and the shooter returned to the car and left the scene of the crime. Passers-by immediately gathered around Bayrambegov, but they could not help him - the doctors who arrived at the scene stated the death of a 61-year-old man from a gunshot wound.

Surrendered voluntarily to the police

The crime was reported to law enforcement agencies by the shooter himself - it turned out to be a 58-year-old local resident Sadiq Taibov. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Dagestan reported that he voluntarily surrendered to the police officers and confessed to them of what he had done.

Footage from the interrogation of Taibov also got into the network: the man explained to the police officers that he had a serious conflict with the murdered man over real estate, which "could not be peacefully resolved for a long time."

"What happened has already happened. He sold my houses. This man made me a homeless person, "says the suspect in the operational footage.

"The head of the administration did not give documents for a legal house - supposedly it is not listed on me. For various reasons, I rejected it. Then I found out that while I was in the hospital in serious condition, he re-registered my houses to another person. After much torment, I decided to take such a step, "Taibov explains his motives.

"He was diligent and normal"

Hajikurban Bayrambeyov has served as the head of the village of Rubas since 2019, and before that he was the director of the local school.

One of the residents of Rubas told RT that at his post the murdered man managed to do a lot for the village: he repaired the school, the road, built a new kindergarten. The RT source also doubted that the head of the village had a conflict with anyone over the land.

"We are shocked, of course, by what happened. I drove by when the body was already covered, and there I found out what had happened. In the morning it was. He was a diligent head, normal. I don't remember quarrels with any of the locals. And about the fact that he took away someone's house - yes, we do not have such a rush for land and houses, as in other places, maybe everything is calm, like everyone else, as in the whole country, "the interlocutor of RT believes.

The administration of the Derbent district told RT that the funeral of the head of Rubas will be held on May 31 at 17:00. "Now we are all on condolences," the administration said. – a former French teacher, school principal, an adequate and calm person. He is survived by his family: his wife, two sons and a daughter."

An RT source in the administration of the Derbent district added that he did not know the shooter personally, but heard that he was seriously ill.

"At the funeral, the locals say that he had cancer, perhaps he had problems with his head. He lived alone in recent months, he had some kind of woman, and she, it seems, kicked out, divorced, "said the interlocutor of RT in the district administration.

In April 2019, RT wrote about the arrest of the head of the Derbent district, Magomed Dzhelilov, for land fraud. He was charged with several episodes of large-scale embezzlement - according to investigators, in different years, Dzhelilov, using his official position, illegally transferred land plots in the Derbent district to his relatives and acquaintances for free use.

In February 2022, the Preobrazhensky Court of Moscow sentenced Magomed Dzhelilov to 7.5 years in a penal colony.
