TYUMEN, June 30 (Itar-Tass) —— A local resident is detained in the city of Tobolsk on suspicion of placing homemade explosive devices in mailboxes.
The man was found at his country house where he resides in summer, a source of the Investigative Committee press service said on Saturday.
Components to make explosive devices, manganese, aluminium powder, nitrate and empty cigarette packs, were found in the search of his place.
The detained man has already made confessions. He explained that he took revenge this way on his 50-year-old acquaintance who earlier appealed to a court to sue him for bodily harm.
According to the investigators, the 34-year-old local resident placed homemade explosive devices into mailboxes of residents in an apartment building in Tobolsk. The explosives were hidden in empty cigarette packs. The explosions on June 21 and 28, 2012, severely injured a 62-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man. They lost hands and received other injures and face and body burns.
A criminal case has been opened on charges of making explosive devices and attempting to kill.
