It is worth mentioning that, at four o’clock in the morning, a car was standing near the temple and suddenly there was a blast in the car. The person sitting in the car jumped out and fell out. The person died of severe burns. NIA officials have claimed that the deceased was a 29-year-old youth named Mubin and he was an engineer. As he had no experience in handling bombs, the blast did not damage the temple.
According to the agency, there were two gas cylinders in the car. There was a blast in one of them. If the other cylinder had also burst, the damage would have been huge. Explosive materials as well as nails and knives were also recovered from the spot. It was probably intended to be used for blasts.
According to sources, Mubeen became radicalized due to the ideology of the Islamic State organization as he could not handle explosives due to lack of proper training.
Police and NIA have so far arrested six people in the car blast case. All these people sympathize with the Islamic State. Mubeen’s plan was to damage the temple and 50 houses around it.
Along with two LPG cylinders, Mubeen and his accomplices kept three drums filled with potassium nitrate, aluminum powder, sulphur, charcoal and nails and knives in the car. Evidence of this was also found in the CCTV footage.
