SARANSK, January 18 (Itar-Tass) — The Investigation Committee /SK/ opened a criminal case over explosion near the entrance to an apartment house in Saransk, in which three people were injured.
Criminal proceedings were opened over "attempted assassination of two or more persons by a publicly dangerous method," and "illegal turnover of explosive devices," the SK's department for Mordovia told Itar-Tass.
The explosion in Mordovia's capital Saransk occurred in the Svetotekhstroi neighborhood at the entrance to a high-rise apartment house on Wednesday morning. The blast wave smashed windows in the apartment house and buildings nearby. Three persons were hurt including a husband and wife. They all were rushed to hospital. Earlier reports said two persons were injured as they were leaving the house. Local mass media outlets reported that the victims were the deputy director of a large electric utility in charge of tenders. All emergency services are working at the scene.
Meanwhile, the SK sent experienced forensic experts from its central office to help investigate the blast.
"The SK chairman ordered the director of the SK's department for Mordovia to personally coordinate the work of the group of investigators at the scene," SK spokesman Vladimir Markin told Tass.
