After her arrest, materials appeared in the media that Bobokulova went to the crime allegedly after her husband began to cheat on her, and she "fell into despair." Later, however, other information appeared: 39-year-old Bobokulova (she speaks about it herself) committed the crime for other reasons.
From the interrogation materials:
Why did you kill the child?
He avenged (...) Who shed blood, he (...) Who shed ... Putin bombed from airplanes. Why do you bomb Muslims and nobody says anything? They also want to live the same. Therefore, I killed a child. Yes...
Information Agency Sputnik publishes an interview with the Samarkand teacher Gulchekhra Bobokulova:
I cannot say that Gulchekhra stood out in any way among her peers. She studied normally, her family is decent, good people. She, like many other rural girls, got married early. In Uzbekistan, everyone is shocked by the tragedy, they are also worried that Samarkand ended up in the news not a hospitable city, but the birthplace of a murderer. According to passers-by, "because of one mentally ill woman, the stigma is now being put on the whole of Uzbekistan."
According to one version, Bobokulova decided to invent history “With revenge on Putin”, because he really suffers from mental disabilities and is in no way connected with the terrorist bandit underground, according to another - it may be related to the Hizb ut-Tahrir banned in Russia, which is actively recruiting members into its ranks Central Asia, from where Bobokulova came to Russia.
