In the result of large-scale investigatory and other procedural actions conducted in the Investigative Division of Artik and Ani of Shirak Regional Investigative Department of the RA Investigative Committee circumstances of murder attempt committed against two employees of “Artik” penitentiary committed by the convict of the same penitentiary were found out.
