New Delhi: The Tamil Nadu police have released CCTV footage of a possible suspect getting off the Guwahati-Bangalore Express on which two blasts in Chennai killed a young woman and injured 14 others.


The police's announcement came after experts from the National Security Guards (NSG) inspected the scene and the materials seized from the damaged coaches.

Inspector-General of Police Mahesh Kumar Agarwal said remnants of clock pieces, batteries, metal pellets and a metallic pipe suggested that a timer device was used as the trigger.

In the footagethe man is seen alighting from the train as soon as it entered the Chennai central station. The man is suspiciously seen running away in video captured by cameras at the station.

Releasing the footage, he said the “person's movements were unusual and required verification.”

Any information on the man in the footage could be passed on to the CB-CID on (044) 2250 2500/10 or (0)77086 54202, he said. The man apparently got off the S-3 coach and ran away after the train arrived; we have not seen him getting into the train again,” Mr. Agarwal said.
