Thiru Abdul Jabbar doesn’t believe in the cylinder blast story and calls it an “Act of Terror.” What’s stopping @CMOTamilnadu from saying it? DMK has to understand it’s minority appeasement politics doesn’t work any more! This govt’s inability to govern is out in the open now!,” he tweeted.
The Tamil Nadu government on Wednesday said that it would ask the Centre to task the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to probe into the Coimbatore explosion case. The NIA officials also held discussions with the Tamil Nadu police on Wednesday in connection with the blast.
The anti-terror probe agency officials are likely to visit the blast site and the house of the deceased, where 75 kg of low intensive explosives were seized.
Chief Minister MK Stalin has been under fire from the Opposition AIADMK and BJP over the issue.
The city has been brought under a tight security cover, as the explosion occurred in front of Kottai Eswaran Temple in the heart of the city in the communally sensitive Ukkdam area, a day ahead of Deepavali.
