“Azer Aslanov, who exploded metro in Baku in 1994, has been in captivity together with me,” said victim Zahid Hasanov in the trial of Armenian militants Alyosha Khosrovyan and Ludvik Mkrtichyan, who tortured Azerbaijani captives, APA reports.
He said that they were kept as a hostage in Khakendi in 1994: “Me, Sergei, Azer Aslanov, and another hostage were kept in Khankendi as a hostage. 5-6 Armenian militants came, took Azer Aslanov to clean the commander’s room. Azer returned after 2 hours, then they took him again. Special service bodies of Armenia conducted a special talk with Azer. Azer was instructed in room of Samvel Babayan. One of those, who instructed Azer, was Ludvik Mkrtichyan. They talked for more than an hour. Sergei came and said that Azer did not clean the room. It was found out that they took Azer Aslanov and did not make him clean the room. After the incident, they gave Azer every meal, which he wanted. It was found out that Azer Aslanov cooperated with Armenians. In that year, Azer Aslanov exploded the metro in Baku. After returning from captivity, I heard that Sergei was shot in hostage.”
