During a conversation with Armenian News-NEWS.am, head of Armenia’s Odzun village Arsen Titanyan said he was beaten by ten people, one of whom was Governor of Lori Province Aram Khachatryan.

“The case is currently in the stage of preliminary investigation. There were about ten people, including the regional governor. They are demanding that I resign,” he said, adding that he has bodily injuries and that he has just been discharged from the hospital.

Asked if he is going to resign, the head of Odzun village said the following: “Why should I resign?”

On June 22, ‘Armenia’ bloc, which ran in the snap parliamentary elections and won seats in parliament, received an alarm according to which the heads of communities who were the bloc’s teammates during the snap parliamentary elections were urged to voluntarily resign.

The head of Odzun village has submitted a report to the Police regarding the crime committed against him.
