    NIA Intensifies Hunt for Rameshwaram Cafe Blast Accused with Released Images

    The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has ramped up its efforts to apprehend the suspects involved in the Bengaluru Rameshwaram Cafe blast that happened on March 1st, 2024. In a significant development, the agency released images of the prime accused on Thursday, March 28th, seeking the public’s assistance in identifying and locating him.

    The low-intensity blast, caused by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), ripped through the popular cafe in the Brookefield area, injuring ten people. The incident sent shockwaves through the city, raising concerns about national security. The NIA took over the investigation soon after, given the suspected terror angle.

    Images Released

    The released images depict a man, presumably in his late twenties or early thirties, wearing a cap and a mask. One image captures him entering the cafe with a backpack, believed to contain the IED. Another shows him leaving the cafe moments before the explosion. These images, along with CCTV footage previously released, provide a clearer picture of the suspect and his movements.

    “We are appealing to the public to come forward with any information that may lead to the identification and arrest of the accused,” stated an NIA spokesperson. The agency has announced a reward of ₹10 lakh for any information that directly leads to the apprehension of the suspect.

    Progress So Far

    The investigation so far has revealed that the blast was likely carried out by a module affiliated with a radical Islamist organization. The NIA has conducted raids across multiple locations in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Uttar Pradesh, leading to the arrest of a key co-conspirator who allegedly provided logistical support.

    However, the prime accused, identified as Mussavir Shazeeb Hussain, remains at large. Investigators believe he may have fled Bengaluru after the blast. The NIA is working with local law enforcement agencies across the country to trace his movements and narrow down his possible location.

    Massive Success

    Security experts believe the release of images is a crucial step in the investigation. “Public participation is vital in such cases,” said security analyst Lieutenant General (Retd.) Vijay Singh. “By sharing any information they might have about the suspect or his associates, citizens can play a vital role in bringing him to justice.”

    The blast at the Rameshwaram Cafe has cast a shadow over Bengaluru, known as India’s “IT hub.” The city has witnessed a heightened security presence with increased patrolling and random checks. Authorities are urging citizens to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the police or security agencies.

    The NIA’s investigation into the Rameshwaram Cafe blast is ongoing. With the release of the accused’s images, the agency is hoping for a breakthrough that will lead to his arrest and prevent further attacks. The case serves as a stark reminder of the ever-present threat of terrorism and the importance of inter-agency cooperation and public vigilance in ensuring national security.
