Afterwards he was transferred in handcuffs to the NSS and later, at 21:30 was released, again without any explanations


On March 5 he was arrested, on the same day investigator involved him as a culprit and immediately requested the district Court for a sanction to place Eghiazaryan in pre-trial detention, which was given to him immediately.
