The indictment act was read out at the session.

According to the act, during the preliminary investigation, it was determined that Gagik Voskanyan, as a member of a group of people who planned ahead of time, attempted to commit premeditated murder of two or more people on duty (i.e., premeditated deprivation of life due to terrorism, as well as national hatred and enmity). Voskanyan, as a member of a group of people, committed terrorism with the use of firearms with the intent of disrupting public security in Azerbaijan, creating panic among the population, and influencing decision-making by public authorities, as well as endangering people's lives, causing harm to their health, causing significant property damage, and other social damage.

The investigation clarified that he and others who had previously conspired to cross Azerbaijan's secured state border without established documentation and outside checkpoints, sneaked firearms and ammunition into the nation. He took actions plainly aimed at arousing national hatred and hostility with particular brutality and illegally bought, stored, and transported firearms, their component parts, and ammunition as part of a group of people who had previously entered into a conspiracy.

They opened fire on Azerbaijani forces in the territory of Istisu village in Azerbaijan's Kalbajar district using rifles. A member of the sabotage organization was captured, and his weapons and ammo were confiscated by Azerbaijani Armed Forces soldiers.
