A Russian MP, Oksana Bobrovskaya and her husband, have been killed when a grenade exploded in their car in Siberia.
The politician was a member of Vladimir Putin’s United Russia Party and her husband was a former special services officer in the Russian military.
The Mirror reports:
Oksana Bobrovskaya and her husband Nikita both died in the blast in Novosibirsk- the largest city in Siberia.
According to The Siberian Times , police fear her husband may have detonated the explosive, allegedly a grenade.
Witnesses have described gory scenes as emergency crews searched the wreckage after the explosion at approximately 10.50 pm, local time.
There were also reports that the pair’s bodies were partially clothed as they were removed from the remains of the vehicle.
30-year-old Oksansa was the regional legislative deputy for the Siberian region and the couple leave behind a four-year-old daughter, who was not in the vehicle.
Claims That A Bomb Was Planted For Oksana’s Husband
According to the International Business Times :
Police are unclear about the circumstances surrounding the couple’s death. There were suggestions that she and her husband Nikita had been having a late-night romp when the husband detonated an explosive. A police source said: “There is a version that he held in his hands a kind of grenade, or a piece of TNT.”
There have also been claims that a bomb had been planted in the car and the husband as the sole intended victim.
Witnesses reported hearing a loud explosion that left the bodies of the married couple completely disfigured, according to Evgenia Romanova, an eyewitness on the scene.
“First there was an explosion,” Romanova said. “The security alarms on neighbouring cars started to scream, and I joked to my husband that the war with Turkey must have begun.”
“And then I looked out of the window and saw all this carnage. My husband went down to the street, and I looked through the window,” she added. “It was horrific – something you would not wish anyone to see. No heads, glass covered in blood… a nightmare.”
The female MP’s face was ‘almost not visible’ after the blast, said another witness. “There was almost no head,” the second witness said.
