A resident of the town of Karabulak, Ingushetia, claims kidnapping of
Zelimkhan Chighitov, her 20-year-old son. According to Zukhra

The incident took place in the dormitory for involuntary migrants,
called "Promzhilbaza", where the Chighitovs, residents of Chechnya, reside.
According to Chighitova, the kidnappers drove cars without license
plates. They did not identify themselves and did not show identification
documents or order for arrest of Chighitov. The relatives were not
informed on the reasons for detainment or the place where Zelimkhan was
"I phoned my son and he told me that he had been severely beaten and did
not know what they wanted from him. He did not know where he was. During
our conversation, a prosecutor from Karabulak stayed beside me. My son
told me to switch off my telephone as he was concerned about his
safety", said Zukhra Chighitova.
The Chighitovs applied to the local prosecution office, employees of
which, according to them, promised them to find the whereabouts of
Zelimkhan, and to the Ingushetia MoI and human rights organizations.
The relatives of Zelimkhan Chighitov have no information about his fate
from the moment of kidnapping.
