    A Moscow court has issued an arrest for a Tajik suspect allegedly belonged to the Daesh terror group, an investigation source told RIA Novosti on Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A Moscow court has issued an arrest warrant for a Tajikistan-born man suspected of recruiting fighters for the outlawed Daesh terror group, an investigation source told RIA Novosti on Sunday.

    The 38-year-old caught police attention in connection to a series of deadly assaults by a Central Asian gang on car owners near the Russian capital in 2012-2014.

    "The court has granted the prosecutor an arrest warrant in absentia for Tadijistan-born Farrukh Azamdzhonov, who is on the security agencies’ list of suspected recruiters for illegal armed groups, including the outlawed [in Russia and many other states] Daesh," the source said.

    The Russian Investigative Committee’s spokesman Vladimir Markin said previously that the gang’s leader was killed, while five suspects were added to Interpol's wanted list.
