Rameshwaram Cafe Blast: Suspect Profile Emerges, Investigation Underway

The shocking blast at Bengaluru’s renowned Rameshwaram cafe during lunch hour has triggered a flurry of investigation activities, shedding light on crucial details surrounding the incident.

Cafe Blast Timeline: The explosion occurred precisely at 12:45 pm near the handwashing area after meals. CCTV footage captured the chaotic scene as heavy smoke engulfed the vicinity following two consecutive blasts. The cafe proprietor confirmed the occurrence of two explosions, with scattered debris visible in the aftermath.

Nature of the Blast: Initially perceived as a cylinder blast, subsequent clarifications from the cafe owner debunked this theory. The explosion emanated from a customer’s bag, ruling out any significant structural damage. Government authorities later confirmed it as a low-intensity improvised explosive device (IED) explosion, resulting in no fatalities or severe injuries.

Political Discourse: In the wake of the incident, political discourse emerged, with contrasting perspectives from various quarters. BJP MP Tejasvi Surya dismissed assertions of business rivalry, while urging Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to ensure an impartial investigation. Siddaramaiah, in turn, emphasized the need to avoid politicizing the event, asserting that such occurrences had been scarce in Karnataka, with the last notable incident transpiring during the BJP regime in Mangalore.

Investigation Updates: Authorities are diligently probing the incident to ascertain its motives and perpetrators. While terrorism angles haven’t been ruled out, Karnataka’s home minister affirmed a comprehensive examination of all possibilities. Notably, investigations revealed the activation of the IED through a timer mechanism.

Suspect Profile: Based on CCTV footage, the suspected individual is estimated to be between 28 to 30 years old. He purchased a coupon for Rava idli but didn’t consume it, raising suspicions. The individual left behind a bag, which investigators speculate might be linked to the explosion. The bag was found adjacent to a woman sitting among six other patrons.

Injuries and Casualties: Thankfully, the blast resulted in minimal casualties, with nine individuals sustaining injuries, including a customer and three cafe staff members. However, all injured parties are reported to be in stable condition, minimizing the impact of the incident.

As the investigation progresses, authorities remain vigilant, focusing on unraveling the mystery behind the Rameshwaram cafe blast, while ensuring the safety and security of the public.
