The Topography of Abductions in The North Caucasus
On the 10th of June, 2009, Batyr Albakov was dragged out of bed by police operatives and driven to an undisclosed location. He remained missing for two weeks until he was confirmed dead by the Nazran morgue, where his body had inexplicably appeared. The body was riddled with bullet wounds and showed signs of severe torture. Ingushetian President Yunus-Bek Evkurov offered his sympathies to Batyr's parents, but insisted that the military contractors who were likely to have been involved in the abduction are not under his command - they take orders directly from Moscow.
