    Several hundred people gathered near the building of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Bishkek today. Their demand is to dismiss the Minister of Internal Affairs and the head of the metropolitan police. According to the protesters, law enforcement officers do not take the facts of kidnapping for the sake of marriage seriously enough. In the Criminal Code, such an act is classified separately from the article “Abduction of a person”, the punishment for it is lighter. And, in fact, according to some rally participants, bride kidnapping has never been a Kyrgyz tradition.

    “It has always been a voluntary conspiracy between the bride and groom. And what is happening now is a natural abduction of a person. I would like our people to share traditions, opportunities for young people and real crime, ”said Umay Arykova, a resident of Bishkek.

    An hour before the start of the rally, the capital's police called a press conference. The head of the Bishkek Municipal Department of Internal Affairs asked for forgiveness from the relatives of the murdered woman. Investigators explained that often the search is slowed down by gaps in legislation. They simply did not have time to track down the suspect by his phone number.

    “The investigator gathers certain material and brings it to the prosecutor’s office. We agree there, go to court. This also takes a very long time. No cell company will give us without a permit, ”explained Ulan Aitbaev, head of the criminal police service of the Bishkek Internal Affairs Directorate.

    The president of the republic reacted to the resonant crime. In his address, Sadyr Japarov promised that all the guilty would be punished, and noted that he took the case under his personal control. At the moment, the police have identified the accomplices of the abduction. Two of them were detained.

    The protesters in Bishkek promised to meet in a week. The main requirement is to thoroughly understand what happened and not allow this to happen again.
