Siddaramaiah appealed to the opposition parties not to politicize the incident. He said that the CCTV footage from the cafe was being analysed and the culprits would be punished.


He also said that such explosions had happened in the past under different governments. He said, “This incident has happened in our government. We will take strict and disciplinary action against those who are involved. Politics should not be done in this matter.”

He said that none of the injured – both staff and customers – had serious injuries and they were being treated in hospital.
