Status report of B'lore blasts soon

 Speaking to reporters here, Gowda said the State police are investigating the case and so far they have interrogated 70 persons. “The police have some of important leads and I hope they will crack the case soon”, he said without elaborating details.

Terming Union Home Minister P Chidambaram’s comments on State government’s tardy progress in the investigation of the case uncalled for, the chief minister said, “instead of helping the state to crack the case, it is sad that Home Minister was indulging in blame game.” Gowda, who met the home minister on the sidelines of National Integration Conference here, said: “I have explained the progress of the investigation to the Home Minister and a status report will also be sending to him”.

Replying to BJP general secretary Arun Jaitely’s allegation over slow pace of investigation into several blast cases in the country, the home minister on Friday had questioned the BJP as to why its government in Karnataka failed to crack the stadium blast case even after one year of the incident.

On April 17, 2010, twin low intensity bombs exploded outside Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium at Bangalore, causing injuries to 17 persons. The Karnataka State police is investigating the case but it remains unsolved.

On the banning of iron ore mining in the ore rich districts of the State, the chief minister said the State would file an affidavit in the Supreme Court seeking the review of its decision.  Sadananda Gowda said the government would bring this issue to the notice of the apex Court.
