Condemning the explosion near the BJP office in Bangalore in which 16 people were injured, party leader M Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday asked the Centre and state governments to coordinate efficiently to nab the accused.


Naidu said he did not have full details of the explosion as yet.

"I strongly condemn this incident and request upon the government of Karnataka and also the Centre to immediately have proper coordination and try to find out what exactly happened, who are the people responsible," he said.

"The country has to be alert, because such things are happening in different parts of the country. Centre and states should coordinate and cooperate with each other and try to reach the bottom of the truth and also identify the persons and forces behind such heinous crimes," he added.

At least 16 people, including eight policemen, were injured when an "incendiary bomb" placed in a motorbike exploded near the Karnataka BJP city office at a time when preparations were on for the May 5 Assembly polls.
