Aditya Rao, the suspect who planted the bomb at Mangaluru Airport, has surrendered to the Bangalore Police. Mangaluru Police investigation team is going to Bangalore to interrogate him. A live bomb was found inside an unclaimed bag on Monday near the airport ticket counter.

Bangalore Central Division DCP Chetan Singh Rathore said that the suspect surrendered to the police claiming to be responsible for the Mangaluru airport incident. “He is being medically examined and we are in the process of handing him over to the Mangaluru team,” the officer said.

Rao, who surrendered at the Office of the Director-General of Police (DGP) of Karnataka, was arrested immediately.

Earlier, Mangaluru City Police Commissioner PS Harsha said on Tuesday that many people were questioned and several suspicious locations were investigated in the case. A CISF officer found near the ticket counter on Monday a bag full of potentially explosive substances. It was later defused by the bomb squad.

The commissioner said that three police teams investigating the case were investigating it from all angles. “We will catch the culprit as soon as possible,” he said.

The interrogators questioned the auto-rickshaw driver, from whose vehicle the suspect arrived at the airport. At the same time, the terminal manager received a bomb threat in an Indigo aircraft going to Bangalore. After this, the plane left late. The police are investigating also whether there is a connection between these two incidents and whether the suspect is associated with any terrorist organisation.

The Bomb Disposal and Detection Squad sent the bomb to the Forensic Science Laboratory to find out the nature of the explosive. Harsha further said that people are sending photographs and videos of suspicious-looking people to police, which are being investigated. The auto-rickshaw driver, who took the suspect to the airport, told the police that the man had another bag, which he had left in a saloon in Kanger before going to the airport. He collected the bag on the way back and landed at the Pumpwell Junction.

Mangaluru grabs national news headlines often for all kinds of wrong reasons like transgressions by the Church, pervert acts and, most recently, violent demonstrations against the amended citizenship law.
