Preliminary investigation of the criminal case initiated on murder attempt committed against the citizen Oseb Markaryan is ongoing in the Investigative Division of Arabkir administrative district of Yerevan Investigative Department.

Through preliminary investigation it was particularly found that on February 6, 2015 Yerevan resident M. Petrosyan went to the office belonging to Oseb Markaryan located on the basement floor of the house 2/1, Proshyan Str.
