The Investigations Committee of the Russian Federation circulated information on Tuesday that the identity of a person suspected of allegedly blowing up an underground train car in Sankt-Petersburg is established.

“The investigation has established the identity of a man who has committed an explosion in a car of an underground train in Sankt-Petersburg. It is Akbarjon (Akbarjan) Jalilov, born on April 1, 1995. Further, criminology experts identified genetic traces belonging to Jalilov on a bag abandoned at the Ploshchad Vosstaniya station, which contained an explosive device. The findings of a genetics examination and surveillance camera recordings give investigators the grounds to allege that the person who has committed a terrorist act in the car has also left the bag with an explosive device in the Ploshchad Vosstaniya metro station,” the Russian Investigation Committee’s press release reads.
