Tamil Nadu: A suspected act of suicide bombing under investigation

An LPG cylinder burst inside a Maruti 800 car near the Kottai Eswaran temple in Coimbatore around 4:30 am on Sunday, 23 October. After the explosion, Jameesha Mubin who was driving vehicle jumped out of the burning automobile and slumped a few feet away on the ground. Before anyone in the area, including police officers nearby could react, the body was burnt.

The explosion was initially believed to be an accident, but later it was discovered that it might be a terrorist attack. Reportedly, during the investigation, items leading to the possibility of a terrorist attack were found.

The Tamil Nadu DGP Sylendra Babu said “We found in that vehicle, nails, marbles and other stuff which are being examined by the forensic department. Following a search at his house we recovered some low intensive explosives—potassium nitrate, aluminum powder, charcoal, sulphur—used in making country bombs.”

The CCTV footage outside Mubin’s house showed four men carrying a heavy item wrapped in a sack on the day of the explosion. Based on the footage, police arrested five men. “A few of them had visited Kerala earlier and that they were also questioned by the NIA in 2019,” said Coimbatore Commissioner Balakrishnan.

The police recovered a list of popular tourist locations in Coimbatore, including government offices and public gathering areas from Mubin’s residence.

A sixth suspect, 28 year old electrical K Afsar Khan was arrested on Thursday, October 27. The DGP said “We have extracted information crucial to the blast probe from five people who had been arrested earlier. I appreciate Coimbatore city police commissioner Balakrishnan and his team for acting swiftly and arresting another suspect. The police will now assist the NIA in the investigation.”

Criticizing Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) government and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, state BJP leader Annamalai said, the police must treat the incident as a ‘suicide attack’. He continued by saying that the TN BJP has requested an NIA investigation in a letter addressed to the home minister of BJP Amit Shah, on this. The ‘cylinder blast’ in Coimbatore is no longer just a ‘cylinder blast’. ISIS ties are obvious in this act of terrorism.

CM MK Stalin, officiated over a high-level meeting to discuss the state’s law and order situation where he recommend that the NIA look into the situation. A special force was also to be formed, along with the installation of sophisticated surveillance cameras, in order to prevent any such incident.

Reportedly, Six of the suspects detained in this case told the NIA during questioning that Mubin believed his suicide bombing operation would result in destruction in the vicinity within a radius of 50 to 100 meters and would also affect certain homes, including the Kottai Eswaran temple.
