Three people have been arrested in Bulgaria's southwestern city of Blagoevgrad in connection with the murder of the Head of the local "Pirin" football team fan club.

The news was reported by the Chief of Blagoevgrad police, Commissar Georgi Kostov.

Dimitar Sukalinski, 41, AKA Banskaliyata (from Bansko) was found dead inside his apartment in Blagoevgrad. Police say that he has been murdered around 9 pm Thursday evening, and died from stab wounds.

According to Kostov, no one has yet been charged because his colleagues are still probing the possible connection of the detainees with the murder and their alibies.

All three have criminal records. Police now inform that it is possible the murder had been perpetrated by a group of people.

The first arrest came Friday afternoon when Zlatan Georgiev AKA Zlatniya (The Golden) was led by special police force outside his Blagoevgrad apartment. Georgiev is known as the right hand of the underworld boss in the region Georgi Kochev – Bibi.

Zltaniya has been arrested in 2009 for opening fire at shepherd in the Blagoevgrad neighborhood where he lives.
