The suspect is the ninth person to have been detained on suspicion of having colluded with the bomber, Kyrgyzstan-born Akbarzhon Dzhalilov, since the attack on April 3.

In December 2013, a suicide bombing at a train station in Volgograd killed at least 16 people, in an attack linked to a network in Dagestan. After the attack the police reinforced security of the service in Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Kazan and other cities, including airports. The FSB described him in a statement as one of the organisers of the attack, who had trained Jalilov, RIA reported.

Jalilov is said to have detonated his device after a metro train left St Petersburg's Sennaya Ploshchad station, heading south for Tekhnologichesky Institut on the blue, north-south metro line. The group includes another 8 people, all of them coming from Central Asia.
