In the aftermath of a low-intensity explosion at Rameshwaram Cafe in Bengaluru's Whitefield area on Friday, February 1, 2024, the City Crime Branch (CCB) has taken charge of the investigation, as confirmed by Bengaluru Police Commissioner. Despite the incident, no arrests have been made yet.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah expressed confidence in swiftly apprehending the culprits, citing multiple CCTV footages available to the investigative teams. The Chief Minister visited the victims at the hospital, where around ten people, present during the blast around 1:00 pm on Friday, suffered burn injuries. Notably, one woman underwent plastic surgery for treatment.

CCTV footage from the time of the blast reveals a man entering the cafe with a bag, his face partially concealed. Police sources are actively working to identify the individual. In connection with the Rameshwaram cafe blast, four people have been detained and are currently undergoing questioning, according to reliable sources.

Simultaneously, Bengaluru police have registered a case under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and Explosive Substances Act concerning the explosion at Rameshwaram Cafe. The incident draws parallels to explosions reported in Mangaluru and Shivamogga in 2022, according to Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar, who noted similarities in the materials used in the improvised explosive device (IED).
