Moscow is in a state of shock after a woman dressed in black was seen walking around near a metro station with a ‘child’s severed head’ in her hand and shouting “I am a terrorist” and “Allahu Akbar.” Here is what’s known so far about the horrific incident.
How it all started
Early Monday morning passers-by noticed a woman dressed in black clothes who was shouting something near Oktyabrskoye Pole metro station in northwest Moscow. The woman then produced what is thought to be a child’s severed head from her bag, witnesses say. She was allegedly threatening to blow herself up. Police were called to the scene and the woman was arrested. She is being examined by psychiatrists, and later on Monday was taken back to the scene of the crime, to re-enact it.
Who the alleged murderer is
The Russian media identified the suspect as Gulchekhra Bobokulova, 39, from Uzbekistan. It’s been reported that she worked for two years as a nanny to the girl who was killed, who was apparently suffering from a severe, but unspecified nervous system disability. The head of the Moscow Migration Service department says the woman did not have a work permit. A source in the police authorities told Interfax that the woman was under the influence of drugs at the moment she was arrested. A “family friend” told the MK.ru news website that Bobokulova was “treated like family” by her employers.
