The explosive device, which police found at the station «Ploshchad Vosstaniya» on the day of the terrorist attack in the subway of St. Petersburg in 2017, it didn’t work because of an error in design, said acting Deputy head of the main Department on investigation of especially important cases of the investigative Committee major General of justice Sergey Golkin.
Day 3 April 2017 on the stretch between the stations «Sennaya Ploschad» and «Tekhnologichesky Institut-2» St. Petersburg underground there was an explosion. Another explosion at the station «Ploshchad Rebellion», was prevented by timely detection of an improvised explosive device. 16 people were killed, including the suicide of Akbarjon Jalilova.
According to Golkina, the investigation found that the first Jalilov left an explosive device at the station «Ploschad Vosstaniya» to remotely make it work, and then later to arrange a suicide bombing using a second device.
«Experts believe that due to errors in the construction of the first IED did not work. Jalilov, returning to the place of Foundation, I saw that bomb do the law enforcement officers got on the train and on the stretch between the stations «Sennaya square» and «Institute of Technology» activated the bomb he had with him,» said Golkin in interview to the newspaper «Kommersant».
