Haveri: The security of all the airports in the state has been increased after a suspicious bag containing explosives was found at Mangaluru airport, said Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

In a candid conversation with the presspersons on Tuesday, January 20 Bommai said, “On Tuesday morning it was noticed in CCTV that some unknown person kept his backpack. As it was suspicious in nature, it was handed over to CISF and police. They inspected along with the bomb disposal squad. Harmful explosives were found.”

“We have increased the security of all the airports in the state, Bangalore, Hubli, Dharwad, Belagavi and Mangalore. Terrors are trying to do such heinous acts in the country for several years. But we have been preventing it with the help of our force,” Bommai said.

He further added that such suspicious incidents usually take place in and around January 26, to disturb the peace. Before Jan 26th, in the past seven years especially, some elements have been trying to disrupt law and order.

“In the past, there have been several such attempts to destroy property and disturb communal harmony in the society. We will find out what materials were used for in this case and also bring the people behind this to book,” he added.

An unattended bag near ticket counters of the Mangaluru airport created a bomb scare on Monday, January 20. The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which is maintaining the security of the airport had cordoned off the area.

According to some reports, two persons had come in an autorickshaw and placed the bag there. Police said they are verifying the CCTV footage.

The container carrying the bomb was shifted to an isolated site near Kenjar and the bomb was detonated there, informed sources.
