According to the representative of the investigative committee of the Russian Federation, the mine was secured under the head of the car, and two more followed after the first explosion. There was no security in the car of the supreme spiritual person of the republic or the cars of escort.

Its driver was installed and detained – it was Abdunozim Athaboev, the citizen of Uzbekistan. Besides him in the following days four more citizens of Tatarstan were detained. One of them, Rustem Gataullin is the head of Idel Haj, a Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca. According to police officers, he threatened the mufti of Tatarstan when that suspected any frauds with the cash flow of the company. Another detainee, Murat Galleyev, is the head of one of the parishes, two more – residents of different districts of the republic.
