He noticed that investigation into his case continues. “Investigation into my case is carried out without bias,” Sodiqov stressed. “I hope it will remain unbiased in the future as well.”

He also asked representatives of other media sources not to interview him yet, since the man wants to stay with the family and “fuss over the case to abate.”
