In shocking news, a 16-year-old teenager was shot dead on the spot by the police forces in Russia after the wrongdoer stabbed a police officer. The shocking incident took place in the Muslim-dominated region of Tatarstan.
If reports doing the rounds are to be believed, then the teenager stabbed a cop and tried to burn down a police station. The terrorist shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ and called the police infidels before striking multiple times on an officer with the help of a sharp weapon.
In the meantime, the Investigative Committee of Russia notified that they would treat the complete incident as a ‘terror attack’ and ‘encroachment on the life of a law enforcement officer’.
In a statement released by the police department of Russia, it reads: “The young man faced to react to repeated demands to stop his actions,” the statement reads. “During the arrest, he actively resisted and stabbed one officer multiple times. Taking into account his aggressive behaviour … officers used standard-issue weapons.”
After the rampage, the terrorist was finally shot dead in Kukmor in Tatarstan. Initially, the police official fired warning shots when the boy attempted to escape from the spot. However, the police official had to finally shoot him.
The young terrorist passed away even before the medical team arrived at the spot. The police officer who sustained multiple wounds was immediately taken to the nearby hospital. Thankfully, his life is out of danger.
