Bengaluru/UNI: A suspect in the planting of a live bomb at the Mangaluru International Airport surrendered before the DG and IG of Karnataka Police, Neelamani Raju, here on Wednesday, police sources said.

However, the accused has surrendered before the police and the cops are interrogating him now.'

He added, 'Irrespective of the organisations the accused belongs to, he will be punished.”

'The probe is progressing well and more details in connection to the case will be revealed after the interrogation,' he added.
