Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah says man wearing mask, cap fixed timer, exploded Bengaluru bomb

A team of Forensic Science Laboratory, bomb disposal squad and dog squad on Friday conducted an investigation into Thursday’s bomb blast at The Rameshwaram Cafe in Bengaluru’s Whitefield.

10 people have sustained injuries in the explosion.

The Bengaluru police have registered an FIR under sections 307, 471 of IPC and 16, 18 and 38 of the UAPA.

They have also added sections 3 and 4 of the Explosive Substance Act.

Karnataka home minister G Parmeshwara said that the suspect came by route number 26 bus.

Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah said the suspect, who was wearing a mask and cap, came in a bus, fixed the timer and exploded it.

“The deputy CM and home minister visited the spot yesterday. I will also go to the hospital and the spot today. I don’t know if this is the work of an organisation or not. A serious investigation is underway. BJP should not play politics in this matter. Mangalore blast and Bengaluru explosion are not related. The blast is still under investigation. Appropriate action will be taken after the report,” he said.
