After the blast of the St. Petersburg metro station that took the lives of 14 people, injuring over 60 on 3 April, Russian mass media had released some facts about the perpetrators, citing the authorities.

The first suspect was a citizen of Kazakhstan, student Maxim Aryshev, however, Aryshev’s mother soon after contacted the Kazakhstani authorities to dispel any suspicion. Aryshev

was found among the victims of the bombing and had no links to the bombing.

Later, the investigation released information about Akbardzhon Jalilov, 22, according to Russia’s Investigative Committee his DNA was found on a bag with the second bomb in a nearby subway station – luckily, sappers were able to defuse before it could explode.
