A 38 year old nanny, Gyulchehra Bobokulova, from Uzbekistan in Russia has been arrested for beheading a four-year-old girl Anastasia (Nastya) Meshcheryakova. She waited for the parents of the girl to leave the flat with their older child, before killing the child for unknown reasons and set the flat on fire.
The remains of the girl was later found inside her cot, dressed in her night clothes, consisting of a T-shirt and shorts.
According to Mail Online, Bobokulova who dressed in a burka, paraded the head of the child through the streets of Moscow chanting “‘Allah Akbar” and threatened to blow herself up as she walked near Oktyabrskoye Pole metro station holding up the little girl’s head.
She was also quoted to have said:
I hate democracy. I am a terrorist. I want you dead.‘You have become so hardened, you have eliminated so many of us. Look I am a suicide bomber, I will die, doomsday will come in a second.
Bobokulova, who was sent for psychiatric examinations after her arrest on Monday, appeared in court today to have her arrest confirmed and extended, claiming Allah ordered her to behead young Nastya, whom was born in 2011.
Speaking in broken Russian from the suspect’s cage, Bobokulova said:
Allah is sending a second prophet to give news of peace.
She also complained that she was “hungry,” had not been fed and would “die in a week”.
The court confirmed the nanny’s arrest and ordered her to be held in custody for two months as investigations continued. Investigators however said they were still trying to establish if Bobokulova had any accomplices.
She is suspected of butchering the girl, who had suffered from learning disabilities and epilepsy, at the family’s apartment in north-western Moscow, before torching the home and fleeing the scene.
A police source revealed Gyulchekhra Bobokulova had been registered at a psychiatric clinic in her homeland Uzbekistan and that her condition had been deteriorating in recent months.
Russian newspaper, Komsomolskaya Pravda, reported that a close family friend has also revealed that the live-in nanny had recently become very religious, spent a lot of time online and had brought home a prayer mat.
