The first blast is thought to have happened at Sennaya Ploshchad before a second explosion was reported at the Sadovaya stop at 2.40pm local time.
A witnesses told Russia's Life News: 'People were bleeding, their hair burned. We were told to move to the exit, because the movement stopped. People just fled. 
'My girlfriend was in the next car that exploded. She said that he began to shake. When she came out, she saw that people were mutilated.'
Eight ambulances are said to be at the scene and there are pictures emerging of bodies strewn across the platform. 
The Life News website showed pictures of blown-out train doors and several injured people on the station platform.
Metro bosses said there were reports of a blast – possibly from an improvised explosive device – inside a train.  
The subway's administration says several stations in the northern Russian city have been closed and that an evacuation is underway Monday afternoon. 
Russian news agencies quoted Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov saying that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been informed about the explosion. 
Putin is in discussion with the Director of the Federal Security Service who is inside the affected subway.

PREVIOUS TERROR ATTACKS IN RUSSIA 

While there was no immediate indication as to what caused the blast, Russia's security services have previously said they had foiled 'terrorist attacks' on Moscow's public transport system by militants, some of whom were trained by Islamic State jihadists in Syria.
And Russia's public transportation systems have been targeted by attacks in the past.
In 2013, Russia was hit by twin suicide strikes that claimed 34 lives and raised alarm over security at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
A bombing at the main railway station of the southern city of Volgograd killed 18 people on while a second strike hit a trolleybus and claimed 16 lives.
A suicide raid on Moscow's Domodedovo airport that was claimed by Islamic insurgents from the North Caucasus killed 37 people in January 2011.
That strike was claimed by the Caucasus Emirate movement of Islamist warlord Doku Umarov.
Russia beefed up its security over the holiday period in the wake of the attack on the Berlin Christmas market that killed 12.
Authorities placed heavy trucks at road intersections to block off areas where public festivities were taking place after the attack in the German capital that was claimed by the Islamic State group.
Russia has intervened militarily to bolster Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces in September 2015, turning the tables on the battlefield just as rebel forces were strengthening their hold on key areas.
Russian bombardments helped the regime retake rebel areas in the east of the northern city of Aleppo after four years of fighting.
More than 310,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict broke out in March 2011 with protests against Assad's rule.

The leader of the Kremlin is visiting the city today and is expected to hold talks with the Belarusian president later in the day.
Sennaya Ploshad is one of the Russian city's main metro stations, where three underground lines connect. 
It is beneath the large 'Sennaya' shopping centre as well as the offices of Gazprombank, Russia's third largest bank. 
The St Petersburg metro said in a statement carried by Russian news agencies that it has closed two stations, Technological Institute and Sennaya Ploshchad - two neighbouring stations on one line - and is evacuating all passengers.
'Evacuation of passengers is ongoing, there are people injured,' it said. 
'An unidentified object supposedly blew up in a (train) carriage.' 
Following the reports, the Moscow metro also announced that it is 'taking additional security measures' as required by law in such situations, according to the network's official Twitter account.
