The Prosecutor General’s Office of Uzbekistan officially commented on the high-profile murder, committed in the “Kamolon” mahalla in Tashkent.

A preliminary examination showed that death occurred as a result of strangulation caused by compression of the neck.
Reportedly, a young lady had an argument with her husband. After which she decided to take revenge on him and called for help from a relative. On October 4, the relative came to her house and hid himself under a table. Late in the evening, when the bank employee came into the bedroom, the relative hit him several times and began to choke him with an iron cord. When the man wanted to call people for help, his wife began to strangle her husband with a pillow. As a result, the man died.
Then the relative took with him two cell phones, $500, 110,000 soums, jewelry of the lady and fled from the scene. In turn, the wife raised a false panic, as if thieves had robbed the house.
