According to Albina Menyanova, wife of the defendant, interrogated as a witness, almost everyone was drinking except for at least three people, including I. Kar. The prosecutor asked who was drinking vodka if among men there were only I. Kar, his cousin Karim Talasan, who also said the defendant did not drink spirits.
"One driver arrived, he was absent at the company's party, his name is Bauyrzhan. Bauyrzhan and Dimash- came and left. Aizhan, Gulmira who organized the party drank a lot, they were drinking vodka, a lot. As far as I remember half a bottle left, they took it home. Aizhan and Gulmira always do like this. He (I. Kar-KazTAG) does not drink at all. We had an argument, he got angry and left alone, " said A. Menyanova in the court's room adding that her husband has not been drinking spirits for 6 years, as he had a rib tumor.
It was revealed that a part of the company, including wife of I. Kar left from the restaurant to the karaoke bar by Gelandewagen car, using the service of a “sober driver". I. Kar separately, presumably, went by taxi.
"When we left the restaurant, the administrator of Darkhan restaurant drove on the car and there was a young man nearby. I asked: "Who is he?". The administrator may be thought it was a company party and everyone was drunk. I said: "We can drive, why?". Other people said, " that's ok, if they called the young man, let him drive". Ilyas said "Anyway we won't get into the car all together, you can go, and we will come ourselves," she added.
