Metro man overhears 2 women talking about upcoming bombing, St. Petersburg
The subway employee reported the conversation.
A 26-year-old inspector of the transport security service working at the St. Petersburg metro reported that a terrorist attack was being planned on the metro, Nevskiye Novosti said.
According to the inspector, he was at the Avtovo metro station when he overheard a conversation between two young women that was about a terrorist act in preparation. The passengers had allegedly been told about it by a stranger at the entrance to the subway. He did not give any details.
The information provided by the metro employee was enough for a big investigation in the subway.
Law enforcers checked all stations but found no bombs. The investigation is ongoing.
Earlier, St. Petersburg police condemned a young woman who said she had “mined” a retro club in Kupchino. The offender was fined 50.000 rubles ($760).
Six months ago, no one could predict the state of the MIA General Administration for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region by the time of the forthcoming elections. After the appointment of Moscow general Roman Plugin in charge of it, the St. Petersburg police has undergone significant changes. Major general of justice Oleg Antropov, Head of the Main Investigations Directorate, is ‘the last man standing’ from the old command of the MIA General Administration. Most probably, he is going to become the next victim of ‘janitor’ Plugin.
