The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has authorized the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to spearhead the inquiry into the explosion at Rameshwaram Cafe in Bengaluru. The anti-terror agency, NIA, has initiated the case investigation following the low-intensity blast that rocked the Brookfield outlet of Rameshwaram Cafe on Friday, March 1, injuring at least 10 individuals.

Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara expressed confidence in the swift apprehension of the perpetrators, citing the collection of 40-50 CCTV footage pieces from the scene of the explosion. “Several teams have been mobilized for an exhaustive investigation. We have obtained some leads from the CCTV footage. Information suggests that the suspect may have arrived by bus. As a result, 26 buses from the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) have been scrutinized,” Parameshwara informed news agency PTI.

Addressing concerns of potential business rivalry linked to the incident, the owner of Rameshwaram Cafe rebuffed such claims, emphasizing the solidarity within the hospitality community. “The Hotelier fraternity are like my brothers & sisters,” the owner remarked in response to the Home Minister’s speculation regarding business rivalry as a motive for the blast.

In a comprehensive approach to the investigation, Karnataka’s Home Minister highlighted the exploration of various angles, including business disputes and attempts to instill fear ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The Minister convened a high-level meeting with senior officials to oversee the progress of the probe.
