City police commissioner N Shashi Kumar on Sunday informed that the police has formed ten teams to investigate the explosion in a moving autorickshaw.

“A case has been registered under the Explosive Substances Act. The police are coordinating with central agencies for the investigation and security has been heightened at various places,” he added.

As per sources, the Aadhar card found with the passenger traveling in the auto in which the blast occurred belonged to some other person.

Earlier today Karnataka Director General of Police, Praveen Sood in a tweet confirmed that the blast was not accidental but an ACT OF TERROR with intention to cause serious damage.

The blast occurred on Saturday evening inside an autorickshaw, near a police station, leaving the passenger and the driver injured. Both have been admitted to the hospital.

State Home Minister Araga Jnanendra said those injured in the blast were being provided good treatment. They are not in a position to speak.

“The information we received shows that there is a deep conspiracy behind the incident. It is visible that the perpetrators had a link with the terrorist organisations,” he said.

He added that the state police is in touch with the central agencies and in a day or two the all the details will come out.

According to police sources, a cooker fitted with detonator, wires and batteries were used to trigger the blast.

After the explosion, the interiors of the autorickshaw were badly damaged. They also suspected that it could be a failed suicide bombing attempt to cause maximum damage.

The blast in Mangaluru bears resemblance to the car explosion in Coimbatore, they said. Meanwhile, the police commissioner has appealed to the people not to panic and avoid spreading rumours on the social media.
