Mangaluru blast: Probe launched against Islamic outfit claiming responsibility

Dakshina Kannada (Karnataka), Nov 24 (IANS): The Karnataka Police have initiated a special probe against an Islamic outfit that claimed responsibility for the Mangaluru blast and warned of another attack in the state.

Reacting to the development, ADGP (Law and Order) Alok Kumar stated that a special probe is being initiated into it. "However, the facts regarding the case will have to be verified," he said.

Investigation into the bomb blast case is progressing rapidly. The statement from the Islamic outfit would have been released to derail the investigations, he said, adding "We will initiate a special probe into this and dig out the invisible hands involved."

Earlier in the day, Islamic Resistant Council (IRC), an unknown Islamic outfit, claimed responsibility for the auto blast and warned of another attack in future.

In a statement, the IRS described the arrested terror suspect as their brother and said that the target was a temple in Kadri in Mangaluru city.

"Mangaluru has become fortress of saffron terrorists. Though our attempts this time have failed, we will get ready to carry out another attack by giving slip to state and central investigating agencies," the statement read.

The blast occurred on November 19 in an auto. The cooker bomb, designed to carry out a large scale attack to fuel communal tension in the coastal region and in the state.

The probe revealed that the attacker initially targetted Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai's programme and later wanted to blast it at a children's fest organised by one of the institutions affiliated to the RSS.

Home Minister Araga Jnanendra had declared that the case would soon be handed over to the NIA.

    The defeaning silence of the usual Congress leaders is very intriguing. Not even a condemnation, note even a frigging statement from the usual so called leaders who call a press conference when outfits like Bajrang Dal apprehend cattle thieves. Silence implies support!!! Obviously its sending wrong signals.

    Sadly they seem to think everyone is after them for no reason..they seem to have short term memory. All of us are fed of their constant violence and hatred. The seeds are sowed by them not any of us. When we respond they tend to forget that they started it and then blame us for responding. Bottomline is that they simply want to hate something or someone. Even within their own nations they fight amongst themselves. They are not interested in life so lets give them what they want.

    We all Indians should stand together against the terrorist activities. They will destroy our country and many will die regardless any religion. For terrorist just using religion name but they kill their own people. We can see in Afghanistan, Iraq. Lebanon. Yemen. In the name of religion killing other is not a human act even God will not forgive them. These people targeting innocent people, children's .
