MOSCOW, March 29 (Itar-Tass) — Two years after the terrorist attacks at the Moscow metro stations of Lubyanka and Park Kultury and the elimination of the attackers and the organizers, the investigation is continuing to find other accomplices, the Russian Investigative Committee's (SK) spokesman Vladimir Markin told tar-Tass.
The investigation into the criminal case is continuing. The investigators have information about involvement of other accomplices in the terrorist attacks. So, the Investigative Committee, together with operative services of the Interior Ministry and the Federal Security Service, continues the work to establish, detain and prosecute them, he said.
The explosions at the Lubyanka and Park Kultury metro stations on March 29, 2010 killed 40 people and injured 160 passengers. The bombs were set off by female suicide terrorists.
The identities of all who directly committed the attacks and the organizers are established. The explosions were organized by Magomedali Vagabov, one of leaders of underground groups of terrorists operating in Dagestan.
According to the investigators, Vagabov formed and headed the gang Novokosteksky Jamaat in February 2010 to commit terrorist attacks in Russia. In the group were Gadzhi Aliyev, Akhmed Rabadanov, Ali Isagadzhiyev, Shamil Magomednabiyev (his Islamic name is Usman), Murad Shchashchayev (Albara), Maryam Sharipova and Dzhanet Abdullayeva.
Investigators detected Vagabov's group. When detained, most active members of the gang offered fierce resistance, and they were killed together with their leader.
The metro was intentionally chosen as a site for a terrorist attack to create a wide public stir in Russia and abroad. The female suicide bombers (Sharipova and Abdullayeva) set off the explosive devices right at the moments when the trains stopped and there were more people in the trains and on the platforms. The aim of the terrorists was to kill as many people as possible, the official noted.
The investigation established that before the terrorist acts, the gunmen's leaders during the 2008-2010 period organized and committed repeated attacks against law-enforcement officers and public activists in Dagestan.
According to Markin, over the two years since the terrorist attacks, more than 500 witnesses have been questioned and 326 various forensic examinations have been conducted, including by blasting, chemical and technical experts. More than 40 searches were conducted. The materials of the case are in 110 volumes. One hundred and sixty eight people are recognized as victims in the criminal case.
