TBILISI, October 28 (RIA Novosti) - A son of Georgia's first post-Soviet president, Zviad Gamsakhurdia, was detained on Tuesday night on suspicion of inflicting bodily harm to a man, local media reported said on Tuesday.
According to Georgian media reports, Tsotne Gamsakhurdia was detained on suspicion of assaulting David Badzhelidze, who was hospitalized with a gunshot in his stomach.
Georgian law enforcement bodies refrain from comments on the issue.
Tsotne Gamsakhurdia was also arrested by Georgian authorities in September of 2008 and charged with spying for Russia, an attempted coup, and grievous bodily harm, but was released on bail later in the year.
Georgia's former president Zviad Gamsakhurdia, a persecuted human rights advocate in Soviet times, died in mysterious circumstances in 1993, aged 54, two years after being ousted and replaced by Eduard Shevardnadze and following a civil war.
