Mysuru, Mar 03 As police intensified its probe into the March 1 bomb blast at a city eatery that left 10 injured, the Karnataka government on Saturday expressed confidence that those behind the incident will be nabbed at the earliest based on CCTV images but said it was not possible to specify at the moment if any outfit was involved in the incident. Bengaluru Police Commissioner B Dayananda said the investigation into the Friday afternoon blast at the quickservice eatery in Brookfield area in the information technology corridor in East Bengaluru that left ten people injured has been handed over to Central Crime Branch and that no arrest has been made yet. He said that the investigation into the incident, caused by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), is in full swing, and "Several teams are working on different leads obtained so far." Earlier on Saturday, police sources said that four persons have been detained for questioning in connection with Friday's low-intensity bomb blast at The Rameshwaram Cafe. They were picked up from Dharwad, Hubballi and Bengaluru. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had convened a meeting of the Home department to take stock of the situation, during which he instructed senior police officers to leverage technology effectively in the investigation and ensure that the "full truth" of the incident comes out. Asking officials to take action against anti-social elements without any sympathy, he instructed them to speed up the investigation in the case and to ensure that such incidents do not recur. Earlier, Mr Siddaramaiah expressed confidence about nabbing the culprit involved in the blast at the cafe, as his movement had been captured by the cameras.It was still not known whether any organisation was involved in the incident. "One person wearing a mask and cap had come by bus, bought Rava Idly from the counter at the cafe and sat down at a place. Then he had set the timer and gone," he told reporters in Mysuru. All the injured persons were safe.
