BENGALURU: The city police have been examining various leads -- from the Telugu newspaper used to wrap the IED to suspicious elements caught on CCTVs around the Church Street and M G Road -- to crack the recent blast case. No arrests have been made so far, the police officials said.

“No other evidence was left behind by those who triggered the blast. In the Malleswaram blast, we had a SIM card and a vehicle. In this case, we have to depend on clues left behind on the bomb itself and also the CCTV footages from the area. We are following various leads and have not reached a dead-end anywhere. We will persist till we reach a logical end and find out who is behind the incident,” a senior police official said. Even while assisting the city police in their investigation, the National Investigation Agency is looking for leads on their own.

While the Special Investigation Team under Additional Commissioner of Police are examining crime scene footages from CCTV cameras for suspicious elements, the NIA also has a copy of the footage and is analysing the same at their lab in Hyderabad.

However, the NIA has not taken over the investigation. City Police Commissioner M N Reddi said the city police were being assisted by various national agencies in the case.  “We have been constantly updating them with regard to the developments and progress that we have made in the case,” he said.
