MOSCOW, July 30 (RAPSI) – Prosecution asked the Presnensky District Court of Moscow to sentence Karomatullo Dzhaborov, a pranker who had allegedly played several coronavirus jokes in the Moscow metro in 2020, to 4 years in penal colony, the court’s press service told RAPSI on Friday.

Dzhaborov and his alleged accomplices stand charged with hooliganism committed in conspiracy.

Prosecutors also demanded 3 years in jail each for two alleged assistants of Dzhaborov.

On February 2, 2020, aboard a metro train the young man fell imitating a sudden stroke, according to investigators. Following that, his accomplices began crying that Dzhaborov suffers a dangerous virus infection whipping up panic among passengers, the Investigative Committee reported earlier. His attorneys insist that the pranker wanted to draw the society’s attention at the virus problem.
