Bangalore: Blast in KPCC Office too - Naxal Hand Suspected

Daijiworld News Network - Bangalore (GA)

Bangalore, Aug 28: On Friday Augsut 26 evening a blast that rocked the JD (S) office at Race Course Road had caused much panic in the hearts of all. Now a recent report said that another blast took place in the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee office on the same day and even half an hour before the blast in JD (S) office.
Since no one was in the office, the incident came to light only on Saturday August 27 morning.

The twin blasts have sent panic amongst the politicians as well as the public. It is said that the explosives were kept in the left side windows of the KPCC office. Only a few of them blasted. But no damage either to the building or to life has yet been reported.

The police were informed about it on Saturday morning. City police commissioner Ajai kumar Singh and joint commissioner M C Narayan visited the place and took stock of things.

Later speaking to the media, the city police commissioner said that both the blasts have been carried out in an identical manner. However, they differed in intensity, so not much damages were reported from KPCC office. He said that all the party offices, including the BJP, would be provided with police security.

The KPCC office watchman Kuppuswami said that he heard a blast sound at 6.30 pm on Friday. But when he came there were no signs of any blast. So he went back thinking it would be a transformer blast. But the PA of KPCC president Mallikarjun Kharge, Devendra Rao had something more to add as he was inside the office during the blast. "I was inside the office when the blast took place. But I did not know. On Saturday morning when I read about the blast reports in the JD (S) office, I went saw in our office the signs of a not so powerful blast.

Responding to queries, Mallikarjun Kharge said that this could be Naxal act as the state government has evoked a ban on the Naxal outfits. He cited the example of Andhra Pradesh where the Naxalites had carried out blasts after they were banned in the state.
