Hakob Melkonyan`s father described details of beating over his son

ArmInfo. The father of the victim of the Djrarat incident between the representatives of the ruling Republican Party and supporters of the Ohanyan-Raffi-Oskanian  bloc Hakob Melkonyan told the radio "Azatutyun" the details of the  incident.

According to him, his minor nephew called him and, crying, said that  they beat his son Hakob near the village administration. "My brother  and friend went after him, at this time 30 people came out of the  village administration, armed with batons, knives and pistols, and  began to beat brother, Hakob and even the minor nephew", the elder  Melkonyan went on to say.

According to him, the minor nephew was beaten with a baton, his  fingers were broken, he was operated in the medical center "Erebuni".  Hakob Melkonyan received a knife and gunshot wound. His uncle  received 4 stab wounds, and two others of their relatives also  suffered. All of them were taken to the hospital.

The day before in Djrarat, again between the supporters of the ORO  and the RPA, an incident took place, in which the village elder  Lernik Yeranosyan, the brother of the Deputy Chief of Police Levon  Yeranosyan, personally participated. According to eyewitnesses, Levon  Yeranosyan himself was also present during the incident.

However, the passions between the RPO and the RPA did not settle down  today in the village of Odzun, Lori region, another incident occurred  between the bloc's representatives and supporters of the ruling  Republican Party. As stated in the message of the bloc, during the  campaign, representatives of the Republican Party of Armenia (RPA)  attacked its representatives and a scuffle began.

To note, the current elections are distinguished by the particularly  aggressive attitude of the Republican Party and its candidates,  despite statements by the country's leadership that the electoral  process should be crystal clear and democratic.  Particularly with  his repressive methods of action, the governor of Ararat region  Aramais Grigoryan distinguished himself, who began dismissing  officials who did not participate in the agitation of the Republican  Party. In the Ararat region, fights also occurred between the  candidates from the RPA itself. 

This night, supporters of the candidate of the Republican Party, the  head of the department for state property management and son of the  Speaker of the Parliament Galust Sahakyan, Arman Sahakyan tried to  settle scores with the candidate for deputy from Tsarukyan bloc, the  owner of Cherry restaurant, deputy Vahan Karapetyan. Although  Sahakyan himself explains the incident solely by everyday motives,  which have nothing to do with the election campaign.
