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.
