The Vagabov crime gang’s member detained in Dagestan will be hit with criminal charges over the terror attacks at Moscow’s Lubyanka and Park Kultury subway stations in 2010, Russian Investigative Committee Spokeswoman Svetlana Petrenko said.
"In close cooperation with FSB and Interior Ministry personnel, detectives identified and detained on March 27 another member of this crime gang in the Russian Republic of Dagestan. The suspect was taken to Moscow. Today, he is scheduled to be charged with carrying out terrorist attacks as part of the organized gang. A motion to select detention as a measure of restriction has been filed with the court," TASS cited Petrenko as saying.

The FSB released video footage of the militant’s detention in a special operation.
On March 9, 2010, female suicide bombers carried out terror blasts at the Lubyanka and Park Kultury metro stations in Moscow, killing 39 people and injuring 128 others.
