Blast suspect also seen in Bangalore CCTV footages

In what could be an initial breakthrough in the probe into twin blasts in a train, a man who hurriedly got down from it here has been spotted wearing a handkerchief to mask his face in CCTV footages of Bangalore railway station, said police sources on Saturday.

It has been found that in the Bangalore footages, which have been examined by experts, the man who had covered his face with handkerchief was the same person who was seen running at the Chennai Central Railway Station platform, thus strengthening the police’s suspicion.

He was seen running towards the exit minutes before the blast in the CCTV footages of Chennai Central railway station. He got down from coach S3, next to S4 and S5 coaches, which bore the brunt of the blasts.

Police had said on Friday that the suspect, a bald-headed middle-aged man, did not board the train at Chennai Central station and had only disembarked hurriedly from coach S3. It was also clarified that he did not get back to his coach. Police officials, as part of their investigation, are also enquiring his co-passengers to establish the identity of the suspect.

Meanwhile, two suspects have been detained in Bangalore, added the sources.
