“The Investigative Committee charged chief track supervisor of the Moscow metro company Valery Bashkatov and his assistant Yuri Gordov with transport safety violations,” Vladimir Markin said.
The investigators claim that Bashkatov and Gordov neglected their duties in supervising the installation of a track switch in the tunnel between the two metro stations - Park Pobedy and Slavyansky Boulevard - which brought about the train derailment.
All of the four suspects are under arrest.
Markin said that technical, chemical, forensic and other analyses were being carried out to determine the causes of the crash and narrow down the list of suspects, taking into consideration other evidence.
