“‘Schizophrenic’ nanny SMILES in Russian court after claiming ‘Allah ordered her’ to decapitate four-year-old girl and walk Moscow streets brandishing the child’s severed head,” by Will Stewart and Julian Robinson, MailOnline, March 2, 2016:
A nanny accused of murdering a child in her care and brandishing the child’s severed head outside a metro station smiled after admitting ‘Allah ordered’ her to carry out the act.
Gulchekhra Bobokulova, a 38-year-old mother of three sons, also replied ‘yes’ when asked if she accepted her guilt as she entered the courtroom in Moscow, Russia.
In scenes that shocked the world, the hijab-wearing nanny was seen walking the streets of Moscow brandishing the head of Nastya Meshcheryakova for an hour before she was detained by police.
Her appearance in court comes a day after a police source revealed the babysitter had kept her schizophrenia a secret and was ‘kicked on to the streets’ after a divorce.
New pictures have also emerged showing the inside of the flat where the four-year-old’s headless body was discovered.
The girl’s father Vladimir Mesheryakov said today there were ‘no words to describe the feeling of hatred, weakness and helplessness’ his family felt.
He said: ‘Everyone, perhaps, knows about our terrible grief. There are no words to describe the feeling of hatred, weakness and helplessness.
‘There is no way to understand the insanity that surrounds our world but I am sure that there are people who went through something similar – and I am grieving for Nastya with them.’
He also begged residents to help find the family’s dog – loved by little Nastya – which went missing during the blaze Bobokulova started at their flat.
As she walked into court today, Bobokulova, who the Russian press has dubbed ‘the bloody nanny’ was asked if she wanted the parents of the girl to forgive her. She replied, pointing her finger to the sky: ‘I will ask nobody. Only Allah’.
Another journalist asked her: ‘What did Allah order you to do?’ She replied: ‘To kill.’
The judge Tatyana Vasyuchenko told the court that Bobokulova stabbed the girl causing her ‘mortal neck injuries’, and then beheaded her.
Earlier, it was reported that she had been strangled before the beheading.
And asked in court if she pleaded guilty, she nodded yes. Questioned if she felt sorry about the girl, she shook her head, evidently meaning no. Inside the court cage, she smiled and waved to journalists.
Speaking in broken Russian from the suspect’s cage, Bobokulova said: ‘Allah is sending a second prophet to give news of peace’ and also complained that she was ‘hungry’, had not been fed and would ‘die in a week’.
‘Hi to everyone,’ she said, waving at the crowd of journalists in the courtroom.
Investigator Olga Lapteva, who was clearly emotional, told the court that Bobokulova was suspected of committing an ‘extremely serious crime’ and that she should face ‘a mandatory prison sentence of considerably more than three years.’
It has also emerged today that a mystery boyfriend may have been with her in the apartment at the time the child, Nastya Meshcheryakova, was killed.
Police apparently now believe that she was not the instigator of the crime.
She has confessed to killing the child but police are now searching for the mystery man who evidently had a relationship with her – and is suspected of radicalising her.
It was revealed today that police suspect a boyfriend or husband visited her at the Meshcheryakov family flat on the day the girl was killed.
Moscow police are urgently seeking the nanny’s boyfriend or unofficial husband named as Mamur Dzhirakulov, 46.
The child was killed between 8am and 8.40am so it suggests an early visit and police are ‘checking if it is true that a stranger was in the flat at that time and if he has something to do with the murder’.
An investigator told the court: ‘The accomplices of the suspect, or we better say the instigators, are currently at large.’…
