Police fails to solve Kingfisher bomb case

KingfisherThe Karnataka and Kerala police, probing the case of explosive material fond on board a Bangalore- Thiruvananthapuram Kingfisher flight few days back, failed to register any progress in the case as police of both states provided contradictory statements over the issue.

The Karnataka police claimed that it handed over three ground staff allegedly involved in the incident to the Kerala police but the former denied custody of any individual in connection with the Kingfisher bomb case.

Basavaraj Malagatti, Deputy Commissioner of Police (North-East Division) and Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) sources at BIA claimed that three persons were arrested by the police when they were trying to board a flight to Dubai. A CISF official confirmed, "We have been questioning everybody and these three persons were taken into custody and have been handed over to the Kerala police."

But a top Kerala police officer ruled out any detention and said that there is no success reported at this point of time. Thiruvananthapuram Police Commissioner Ajith Kumar added, "We are still investigating and are yet to get any clues as to who could have placed the explosives inside the aircraft."
