MADURAI: In the wake of the low intensity bomb blast that occurred in Anna Nagar here on Tuesday, a cross section of the public felt that the police should pre-empt attempts by miscreants to create panic.

Madurai district court advocate C Senthamil Selvan warned that the ‘bomb culture’ was slowly gripping the temple city.

“The recent recovery of bombs and the low-intensity blasts in Madurai reveals a weak intelligence network,” the advocate said.

H Jayanthi, a shop keeper at Shenoy Nagar, wanted the police to  spread awareness about unclaimed motorcycles, cycles, suitcases and tiffin boxes. “Only then, will the public inform the police about such suspicious things left unclaimed in public places,” she said.

According to Pandi, a cucumber vendor near the Madurai Collectorate, the bomb blast, which came at a time when the city was gearing up for the Meenakshi Amman Thirukalyanam and Alagar’s entry into the Vaigai, has created panic among the people of Madurai.
