MOSCOW, August 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Among the versions about the explosion, which went off near the Investigative Department of the North-West District’s police, the main one is that it is hooliganism, a source at law enforcement authorities told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The police study all the circumstances of the incident, and the main version is hooliganism,” the source said. “As yet, there is no information regarding victims.”
The explosion went off near 6/1 Marshal Konev Street, not far from the Investigative Department of the police of the North-Western Administrative District.
“The explosion has broken out some windows,” the source said.
The police are working at the site.
“According to preliminary information, an explosive device went off near the Investigative Department,” the source said.
Over the past month and a half it is the second explosion in north-western Moscow. On July 11, somebody threw a sell-less explosive divice into the office of Deputy Head of the Investigative Department of the North-West Administrative District in Zhivopisnaya Street. The explosion damaged walls, the ceiling of the office and broke out window glass.
“It is too early yet to say that these two accidents are connected,” the source said.
