The investigation committee of Russia confirmed that the explosion in Saint Petersburg’s subway was committed by 22-year-old Akbarzhon Dzhalilov.
‘The investigators identified the man who set the bomb in the wagon car in the subway of Saint Petersburg. He was Akbarzhon Dzhalilov, born on April 1, 1995. Experts found some of his genetic material on the bag that he left at the ‘Uprising Square’ metro station, with the explosive device inside it,’ the authority’s press service reported.
The findings of the genetic expertise and surveillance camera records let the investigators confirm that the man who left the bag at the ‘Uprising Square’ metro station and the one who committed the terrorist attack was the same man.
Previously, Dzhalilov’s name showed up in the Russian media, as the reporters called him a possible suspect in the attack.
The blast at Saint Petersburg’s subway took place at 2.40 p.m. Monday, April 3. The explosion wrecked one of the wagon cars, killing 14 and wounding 51 people.
