When the ambulance took him, his right leg was visibly swollen. It became swollen so fast, there was so much blood there, but nobody could have thought he would die,” another witness said, describing the tragic episode.

One of the suspects, who was identified as Nuraly Kiyasov, was detained by Kazakh police and confessed to the crime.

He was taken to the crime scene by Kazakh law enforcement officers who have been investigating the tragedy. A second suspect involved in the altercation has also been detained by police.
