Coimbatore Car Blast: A person was charred to death in a car explosion outside a temple in Coimbatore on Sunday. Five men were arrested for their alleged involvement.
The police investigation suspects a terror link after huge quantities of explosives were found at Jameesha Mubin’s house after one of the two cylinders he was carrying exploded near a temple in Ukkadam area early on Sunday.
The trio of Nawaz Ismail, Firoz Ismail, and Mohamed Riaz are accused of helping Jameesha Mubin load the cylinders and low-intensity explosive materials into the car despite knowing his plans.
Another suspect, Mohamed Azharudin, was involved in coordination, while another man, Thalka, a scrap dealer, donated an old Maruti car for free.
The accused is seen carrying heavy objects from a house in CCTV footage that NDTV cannot independently verify.
Investigators have recovered explosive chemicals from the home of Jameesha Mubin. They say the explosion that killed her wasn’t a suicide mission, but an accident.
In 2019, Jameesha Mubin was questioned by the National Investigative Agency in connection with a man arrested in Kerala for alleged ties to the ringleader of the Colombo Easter Bomb Blasts.
Since Jameesha Mubin, who police say is a self-radicalized person, lied low and received assistance from some groups.
Chief Minister MK Stalin’s silence on the matter has been questioned by Tamil BJP leader K Annamalai, who called the explosion an unprecedented suicide attack under DMK rule.
“Would you wait until loss of life?” he asked.
The case is being investigated by six police teams.
