Their condition is currently stable," the report reads.
The law enforcement officers also established that the attackers took a bag with a large amount of money belonging to the killed person.
"The person ran a business. He has been subjected to armed assaults previously, which is why he has been guarded by members of a security agency over two years. The guards were accompanying him on the way to his office and back home," the police officials said.
The operation to apprehend the perpetrators was launched in the region soon after the assault report. The attackers are still being searched for. The police take all necessary measures to establish the suspects in the murder.
