Casualties in St. Petersburg metro explosion on Monday have risen to 56, with at least 11 killed and 45 wounded, according to Russia's Anti-Terrorist Committee.

Russia's Investigative Committee (IC) has opened a criminal case on the explosion, said an official statement released by the IC.

An explosion of an unknown explosive device took place around 14:40 local time in a train carriage on the runway between the metro stations Technological Institute and Sennaya Ploshchad (Square) in St. Petersburg.

According to Russian Health Minister, at least 11 people were killed and 56 more injured in the blast. At least 10 death tolls and 50 injuries were previously reported by Russian media.

"Despite the fact that the criminal case has been launched under Article 205 of the Russian Criminal Code (terrorist act), the investigators will probe other potential causes of the incident," IC's spokeswoman Svetlana Petrenko said.

According to the statement, a group of experienced investigators and criminologists from the central office of the Investigative Committee was sent to St. Petersburg. Initial investigative actions are being carried out.

The prosecutor's office in St. Petersburg has also begun an investigation in connection with the explosion. The prosecutor of the city Sergei Litvinenko has already arrived at the scene to coordinate the actions of law enforcement agencies, according to a statement from the Prosecutor General's of Russia Office.

"We will do everything we can to clarify all the points that contributed to the commission of the terrorist act, so that this does not happen again in the future," TASS quoted Representative of the Prosecutor General's office Alexander Kurennoy as saying.
