After stop evacuation started, during evacuation 6 people were seriously injured (2 kids among them).

Kazakh press claiming that 2 out of 6 stewardess were under alcoholic intoxication, 3 out of 6 escape slides worked and information from flight recorders where deleted by pilots.

Now the plane is in Almaty, with flat tires on the far stand.

I don't think that's possible so easily.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

Some pilots whom I know saying that there are some way to do it on western types.

May be not all recorders, but only voice recorder was erased.

I imagine the data from the incident would be deleted by just leaving the recorder on.

Yes. Shortly after front gear was lifted.

ALA have one of the longest runways in the world (14427 Feet), so it was enough to stop - plane stoped on the runway.
