According to the initial information, it was reported that, at first glance, it seemed that the car’s cylinder exploded. When the blast took place, the convoy of the CRPF was quite far away.
It does not appear prima facie that the car was being used to target the CRPF convoy. However, no conclusion can be reached before the investigation into the case is over.
