Russia parades 3 more terror suspects from ISIS cell behind Moscow massacre as they ‘planned to help gunmen escape’

The three men were dragged into glass cages and ordered to be put in pre-trial detention.

Russia claims that Dilovar, 24, was the owner of the white Renault car that the four shooters used to flee the scene.

“I was shocked when I saw photographs [of the car at the crime scene],” Islomov was quoted as saying by independent Russian outlet Novaya Gazeta.

An unnamed relative told the outlet that Islomov and other family members had contacted the police themselves.

Aminchon has reportedly denied any role in the attack in court.

An ISIS splinter cell, known as ISIS-K, has claimed responsibility for the terror attack – the worst to hit Russia in 20 years.

Vladimir Putin declared Sunday a national day of mourning and on Monday the death toll was raised to 139 with over 180 wounded.

Russian authorities confirmed that the four shooters are from Tajikistan, and added that the other seven suspects are all foreign nationals.

The men, who have been named as Dalerdzhon Mirzoyev, 32, Saidakrami Rachabalizoda, 30, Mukhammadsobir Fayzov, 19, and Shamsidin Fariduni, 25, could face life imprisonment.

They were hauled into court with cuts and bruises, one without ear and another unconscious in a wheelchair.
