Another shooting took place on the Azerbaijan-Iran border, leaving one dead.
Citing the State Border Guard Service, APA reports that border guards noticed two trespassers. After gunshots fired by border guards at the trespassers who failed to obey the command, one of the contrabands was killed, and the other managed to hide. During inspection, the border guards found two bags of nearly 15 kg of a narcotic drug, as well as a rifle.
Through the undertaken measures, resident of Beylagan region Mamedov Adish Javadoglu (born in 1975) was arrested, and border guards found and seized 10 bottles of alcohol. Mamedov had to meet with the contrabands in order to take the narcotic drug. The incident has been reported to the Iranian border guard representation.
