Baku. Shhriyar Alizada – APA. Baku Court of Appeal on Tuesday dismissed the appeal of a man accused of attempting to kill two police officers in Baku.
Earlier, the accused, Ismat Bakirov, had been sentenced to 16.5 years in prison under the judgment of the Baku Court of Grave Crimes.
A dispute had erupted between two police officers, identified as Shaig Aghayev and Vugar Gambarov, and Ismat Bakirov, who worked a doorman in Sadarak trade center in Baku, as they dropped remarks on the latter who was smoking in a smoking-prohibited area in the center.
Bakirov, in anger, attempted to deliberately murder the police officers by stabbing one on his back and the other in his stomach.
