BENGALURU: The city police have claimed that they have vital clues of suspects involved in the Church Street blast case.  Special teams are searching for the accused in the neighbouring states, they said.

Though the blast took place almost two months ago, the police are yet to identify its perpetrators in spite of drawing two sketches of suspected persons. No corroborative evidence has been found to tie them to the blasts.

Several teams, formed under the guidance of ACP Alok Kumar, have been sent to neighbouring states and districts in the States. They have mostly returned empty handed, it is learnt.

City Police Commissioner M N Reddi told reporters that the investigation has picked up pace after getting credible clues on the suspects. On December 28, a low-intensity bomb explosion outside the Coconut Groove a restaurant on Church Street left a woman dead and four others injured.
