ArmInfo. In the room where the body of the former head of the NSS, Georgy Kutoyan, was found, dozens of bullets and cartridges were found. In addition, there are damage on the walls. Artur Melikyan, deputy head of the RA Investigative Committee, said this in an interview with reporters on January 17.
He also informed that at the scene of the incident award "Glock'' pistol was discovered received earlier by Kutoyan from the leadership of Georgian Security Services. When asked if the found bullets and shells apply for this gun, Melikyan noted that only a forensic ballistic examination can determine that.
The forensic report will be received on January 18. Meanwhile, Melikyan said that Kutoyan was gunshot wounded at his temple.
Law enforcement authorities conduct the necessary investigative measures. In particular, video recordings are seized, the spouse and father of the deceased are interrogated. It was the wife who discovered the body upon returning home.
A criminal case was instituted under Article 110 of the RA Criminal Code (Bringing to Suicide), however, Melikyan did not exclude the possibility of proposing other versions. "It could be a murder or a suicide- tuned one," he said, adding that the investigation would answer this question.
