Clashes between Tajik government forces and an armed gang of Nazarzoda supporters in Bishkek left over 20 police officers and nine gang members dead earlier this month.
Tajik Prosecutor General's Office has accused the Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan (IRPT) of an attempt to carry out a military coup in the country. The party's chairman, Muhiddin Kabiri has been implicated in the plot, together with Nazarzoda. The IRPT opposition party was branded a terrorist organization by Tajikistan's Supreme Court.
According to Tajik authorities, Nazarzoda was killed earlier this month.
