Gulchekhra Bobokulova, a 38-year-old nanny from Uzbekistan, said that Allah had told her to decapitate a four-year-old child that was in her care.
Bobokulova is accused of murdering the girl before carrying her severed head outside Moscow Metro station. She claims she “took revenge against those who spilled blood” in Syria in a YouTube video uploaded immediately after the murder. “Putin spilled blood, planes carried out bombings. Why are Muslims being killed? They also want to live,” Bobokulova said, speaking very matter-of-factly.
The father of the murdered girl, named Nastya, says Bobokulova had never worked as a nanny before he hired her. He also said he did not recall her ever being devoutly religious and claimed his daughter was frightened by her.
