The recent explosion at a café in Rameswaram near Whitefield, Bengaluru, has raised concerns among law enforcement agencies, prompting an investigation into potential connections with previous blasts in the state. Specifically, authorities are scrutinizing the similarities between this incident and the recent Mangaluru cooker bomb blast. 

Full Story: 

In both cases, the use of similar explosives, including batteries, detonators, nuts, and bolts, has drawn attention. As investigators delve into the details, the focus intensifies on individuals linked to the Mangaluru blast, particularly the alleged mastermind, Shariq, and his associates, currently in custody at Parappana Agrahara.

Shariq, identified as the mastermind behind the Mangaluru blast, and his associates, currently incarcerated in Parappana Agrahara, these individuals are now subject to intense questioning by police officials. A joint effort by state and national investigation agencies is underway to analyze CCTV footage from the Rameswaram café.

The footage captures the accused entering the café, spending nearly an hour inside, and leaving with a bag containing explosives. Despite attempting to avoid public and camera scrutiny, the accused was caught on camera discarding the bag in the hand washing area before fleeing the scene. 

Initial findings suggest the possibility of a systematic conspiracy involving the manufacture of explosives and procurement of materials. The involvement of well-trained individuals is suspected, indicating a coordinated effort. The creation of the explosive device, referred to as putty explosive, involves a combination of raw materials such as nails, glass, gunpowder, or matchsticks. This plastic explosive, made using gelatins, is particularly concerning as it remains undetected by standard metal detectors, allowing it to be transported discreetly.

Authorities suspect that sleeper cells may be behind the production of these explosive devices. Crafting such bombs requires specific expertise, and it appears that spare materials supplied by sleeper cells played a role in their assembly.
