"We arrived at the hospital when Hayrikyan was being brought out of the operating room. He was asleep, and we could not talk to him. I wish Hayrikyan quick recovery. Doctors assured us that the operation was successful and Hayrikyan's life is not endangered," writes Oskanian.
"What happened is horrific and deplorable. A person that loves Armenia a bit would never allow such a thing happen because it first of all tarnishes the reputation of our nation and our country," he continues.
When speaking about the crime versions one should me cautious and wait for law enforcement bodies to do their work," reads the message.
