Kanat Taimerdenov, the chief of the municipal police department, stated on Sunday that over the few days that Almaty was rattled by riots, there were seven attacks on the city’s morgues, and rioters seized many remains of their collaborators, according to Sputnik News Agency.

Protests occurred in the west of the nation in response to a sharp increase in fuel prices. The turmoil soon expanded to other cities, including Almaty, Kazakhstan’s old capital in the south. Protests in Almaty became violent, with looting and assaults on government buildings.

The government announced a state of emergency from January 19 to January 19. Kazakhstan’s President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev sought assistance from the Collective Security Treaty Organization, which dispatched peacekeepers to the country. The CSTO mission was completed earlier this week, and peacekeepers began to leave on Thursday.
