BISHKEK, April 4. /TASS/. Kyrgyzstan’s National Security Committee maintains contacts with the Russian special services investigating the terrorist attack in the St. Petersburg subway, the committee’s spokesman, Rakhat Sulaimanov, told TASS on Tuesday.
"It has been established that an individual suspected of carrying out a terrorist attack is a native of our republic," he said. According to Sulaimanov, it is also known that he was granted Russian citizenship some time ago.
According to the press service, the committee confirms that Akbarzhon Jalilov born in 1995 is indeed a native of Kyrgyzstan. "However, we do not know whether this person is involved in the terror attack or not," the press service noted. It added that the committee had received information concerning Jalilov’s alleged involvement "from the Russian side."
Sulaimanov earlier said it is in touch with the relevant agencies in Russia investigating the terrorist attack in St. Petersburg.
An unidentified device went off at about 14:40 Moscow time on Monday in a subway train car when the train was moving from Tekhnologichesky Institut Station to Sennaya Ploshchad Station. The Russian Investigative Committee has qualified the blast as a terrorist attack, but other versions are looked into as well.
According to the latest reports, the blast has claimed 14 lives.
