Two Russian “spies” alleged to be involved in the killing of Chechen militant Abdulvakhid Edelgireyev in Turkey were caught in a joint operation that took six months to prepare by the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) and police in Istanbul, Turkish media reports.

The alleged spies, 52-year-old Iurii Anisimov and 55-year-old Aleksandr Smirnov, were caught while they were doing intelligence work for another plot, daily Habertürk reported. The alleged spies, who refused to talk during interrogations, have been arrested.

According to reports, Edelgireyev was approached by a white car, and was then shot and stabbed by assassins in a car on November 1, 2015, in the Kayashehir district of Istanbul.

Notably, Edelgireyev is a relative of Chechen leader Movladi Uduqov and was administrator of famous Chechen website "Caucasus Centre".
