Mangaluru cook explosion: K’taka government hands over the case to NIA

Karnataka Home Minister Aragha Gnanendra said on Thursday that the state government had taken the decision to hand over the case to the National Intelligence Agency and issued the order in this regard.

It is recommended that the case be investigated under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. The minister added that the state government took this decision after following the evidence and inputs gathered during the investigation of the cook explosion case.

The decision was also taken after the Islamic Resistance Council, a little-known Islamist group, claimed responsibility for the Mangaluru car blast on November 19 and warned of another attack in the future.

The congregation also warned the Additional Director General of Police (Law & Order), Alok Kumar, who is in Mangaluru and personally monitoring investigations into the blast case.

“Your Alokkumar joy will be short-lived. You pay for your domination sooner,” the outfit warned.

Police sources confirmed that they took the warning seriously. Central investigative agencies have already started an investigation in this regard.

The investigation also revealed that the plot was orchestrated to carry out bombings and blame Hindu organizations and re-ignite the debate about “Hindu terrorism” in the country.

The explosion occurred on November 19 in a moving car. The cook bomb was designed to carry out a large scale attack to inflame communal tensions in the coastal region and in the state.

The investigation revealed that the attacker, Muhammad Shariq, who is in the hospital with serious burns, initially targeted the program of Prime Minister Basavraj Bommai and later wanted to detonate him at a children’s festival organized by one of the institutions affiliated with the RSS.
