A police spokesman said the soldier on August 20 killed the commander of his post near the border with Kazakhstan and three other soldiers along with the wife of one of the soldiers before fleeing in a car.

A search is under way for the border guard in an area located some 100 kilometers south of the Issyk-Kul resort area and some 20 kilometers from the border with Kazakhstan.
