Bengaluru, March 1 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Bengaluru South constituency, Tejasvi Surya on Friday urged Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to provide answers to the people about the blast that took place at a cafe here in the city’s Indiranagar area.

On the incident, taking to social media, Tejasvi Surya who is also the national president of BJP Yuva Morcha, said: “Just spoke to Rameshwaram Cafe founder Sri Nagaraj about the blast in his restaurant. He told me that the blast occurred because of a bag that was left by a customer, and it was not any cylinder explosion. One of their employees is injured. It seems to be a clear case of a bomb blast.
