Russian Courthouse Attack Leaves 137 Dead: A Look into the Aftermath and Allegations of Torture

On Sunday, a terrorist attack occurred at the Basmannyi courthouse in Moscow during the interrogation of suspects. As a result, 137 people were killed and more than 180 were injured. The attack took place on Friday night at the Crocus City Hall before a concert, when a group of gunmen opened fire on the crowd. The suspects then set the building on fire before fleeing the scene.

On Saturday morning, the Russian security service FSB announced that they had arrested eleven suspects, four of whom are believed to have participated in the act themselves at the concert hall. Four of the terrorist suspects are said to be citizens of Tajikistan. The president of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahman, condemned the attacks on Sunday. The jihadist Isis-K claimed responsibility for the attack shortly after it happened.

The suspects were brought to the Investigative Committee headquarters in Moscow on Sunday and allegedly arrested on Saturday morning in Bryansk region of western Russia. Claims about their exact locations have varied from Teply village near Belarusian border to Hatsun near city Bryansk, about 100 kilometers away from Ukrainian and Belarusian borders. It is over 400 kilometers from Moscow to this location. Russia claimed that perpetrators were fleeing to Ukraine after the attack, but spokeswoman of Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova hinted that Western countries appeal to ISIS as an excuse for their “protection roads” in Kiev through Reuters news agency.

Videos of arrest and interrogation situation began to circulate on social media showing alleged torture of suspects by members of Russian Social Chamber and Vladimir Rogov who published them on his Telegram channel on Saturday
