Woman holds up child's severed head, shouts 'I'm a terrorist' outside metro station in Moscow

Gory scenes were witnessed outside a metro station in Moscow after a woman was spotted brandishing the severed head of a child and shouting chants like "Allahu Akbar" and "I am a terrorist," reports said.

According to a report on Russia Today, the woman, wearing black clothes at the time of the incident, was stopped by police authorities after she had been walking around for more than an hour outside the Oktyabrskoye Pole metro station in northwest Moscow. That was when she pulled the head out from her bag, claiming that she had killed the child. The girl who was killed was identified as Nastya M.

The accused has been identified as a 39-year-old Uzbekistan native Gyulchekhra Bobokulova, who worked as a nanny, according to The Telegraph, . She was babysitting the victim, and allegedly committed the gruesome act when the parents and the older sibling of the deceased had left the home.

The woman is then said to have set the house on fire, apparently in order to cover up the crime. The Moscow police had earlier on Monday reported the discovery of a headless body of a child at the scene of a fire in an apartment block near the same metro station.

The Telegraph quoted Yulia Ivanova, an official spokesperson for Moscow's Interior Ministry, as saying that a criminal case on the charge of murdering the child has been opened into the matter, with the investigators trying to determine her motives for the murder.

The woman is said to have revealed the motive behind her decision to commit the act — due to her husband's infidelity — according to a report on Life News.

She has been placed in psychiatric care to determine whether she is capable of understanding her actions, according to BBC.
