The detainees include two brothers and their father: Aminchon, Dilowar, and Isroil Islomov. Court documents reveal that Dilowar was the recent owner of a white Renault car. This vehicle was used by the assailants to get close to the Crocus City Hall concert location.

The Russian Investigative Committee has identified one of the attackers, Shamsudin Fariduni, as having drawn Dilowar and his brother Aminchon into "the operations of an organized group."

Aminchon Islomov informed that after learning about the attack, he and his brother took the initiative to contact the police. He also stated that the car had been sold by Dilowar a week prior to the incident, according to reports from the Mediazona channel on Telegram.

Arrests related to the assault

A district court in Moscow declared on Sunday the detention of four individuals linked to the attack on the Krasnogorsk concert venue. They are to be held in custody for two months pending further investigation.

In a related development, the Russian news platform Baza disclosed that a taxi driver, who transported Shamsudin Fariduni away from the concert venue, recounted that Fariduni initially conversed in Tajik but later switched to Russian. Fariduni claimed he had recently arrived from Turkey with ambitions of earning a living in Russia through apartment renovations.

Additionally, another taxi driver from Chechnya contacted the police on Saturday, revealing that he had driven one of the suspects to the concert venue.
