In Cairo captivity: what is known about the natives of Dagestan who disappeared in Egypt

18 natives of Dagestan who disappeared in Cairo may be associated with the terrorist underground of the North Caucasus and the IG *. According to a source in the Dagestan power structures, among the disappeared ones are the wives of the militants. Relatives claim that women no longer live with their husbands.
According to them, the Egyptian special services may be behind the incident. However, official Cairo does not confirm the fact of the detention of Dagestan, and so far nothing is known about their fate. The Russian Embassy sent a request to the Egyptian side with a request to clarify the situation.

The first in Egypt, the 31-year-old native of the Dagestan village of Gimry Saknat Baysultanova stopped communicating. On the evening of March 12, armed men in masks burst into a house on the outskirts of Cairo, where a Russian woman lived with four children.

The details of the detention were subsequently described by sister Sakinat Mesedo Baysultanova.According to her, strangers, among whom was a Russian-speaking woman, began questioning the hostess of the house about the whereabouts of her ex-husband, Ahmed Aligadzhiyev, who fought against the government forces in Syria. After that, Sakinat was taken away in an unknown direction.

On the night of April 24, the security forces, Mesedo notes, made a return visit to the Sakinat house.

This time they took the four children of the Russian woman, as well as her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Magomed Aligadzhiyev and Suad Hapizova. Those flew to Egypt from Dagestan to look after children in the absence of a mother.

Around the same time, law enforcement officers made several more raids on the homes of immigrants from the North Caucasus republic. In total, 17 Russians were taken away overnight, most of them women and children. Mesedo Baysultanova was among the detainees along with four children.

Extremists and their wives

The Baysultanov sisters detained in Cairo had a difficult past. Before leaving Russia, they lived in the mountain village of Gimry of the Untsukulsky district of Dagestan, and their husbands were associated with a terrorist bandit underground.

Thus, according to a source in the Dagestan security forces, the former husband of Mesedo Baysultanova Magomed Suleymanov was a member of the terrorist organization "Emirate Kavkaz" **.It was liquidated during a special operation in 2015.

Her sister's husband, Sakinat Baysultanova, managed to leave Russia several years ago.

The former head of the administration of the village of Gimry, Aliaskhab Magomedov, who is familiar with the Aligadzhiyev family, told RT that at the end of the last decade, the gunman was amnestied.

“There were some sins over Ahmed, but at the end of 2009 he and several of his friends were amnestied,” Magomedov said. “Then he went to Turkey with clean documents.”

The former head of the village administration noted that he also heard about the fate of Aligadzhiev Sr., who was detained in Cairo at his daughter-in-law's house.

Magomed Aligadzhiev

“Magomed is a man of traditional religion. He has a shop near the place of death of Imam Gazimagomed, Aliashab said. - He is a normal person, he sold bread and was engaged in charity. I know that he went to Egypt to help out his grandchildren. ”

Peaceful life in Cairo

Now his cousin Sakinat, Huseyn Baysultanov, who has been living in Istanbul for the past five years, has joined the search for the missing Russians.

“I immediately thought that the disappearance of Sakinat might be related to her ex-husband,” said RT Baysultanov.“At first, I was sure that my sister would soon be released, since she had been divorced for three years and had no relation to the affairs of her former spouse.”

According to his brother, Sakinat lived in Egypt for about a year. In Cairo, she earned small business - was engaged in the sale of traditional Muslim medicine. Prior to that, she lived in Turkey for several years, and divorced Aligadzhiev there.

The spouses went to this step on the advice of relatives, who considered that the participation of Ahmed in illegal armed groups was too many problems for his wife. Baysultanov stressed that his sister had never been to Syria, moreover, she had never had problems with the law.

Arriving in Cairo on April 1, Hussein speaking Arabic immediately went to the police to inquire about the fate of his sister. In the station he was told that they did not know anything about the arrest, or even the whereabouts of the Russians.

During the search, he turned to one of the lawyers, who managed to find out that Sakinat had been detained by the Egyptian State Security Service "Mukhabarat Amn al Qawmi".

“As I understand it, the lawyer personally met with someone from the special services,” recalls Baysultanov.“In a conversation, the security official confirmed that her sister was arrested because of the participation of her ex-husband in the armed conflict in Syria.”

As the lawyer explained, the state security service officers are keeping his sister as a tool of pressure on Aligadzhiyev, and the only thing that can help Sakinat is the transfer of information about her former husband to the security forces. The lawyer also said that this is a common practice of the Egyptian special services.

The Russian Embassy in Cairo has already announced that they are checking information about the detention of Russians.

“We received a statement from relatives about the detention of 17 natives of Dagestan, nine of whom are minor children,” the Russian embassy told RIA Novosti.

The diplomatic mission sent a request to the Egyptian side and is awaiting confirmation and detailed information about the incident.
