Bomb disposal causes panic

The defusing of a bomb by the Periyaneelavanai STF unannounced to the public near the Periya Kallar beach created confusion and fear in the area, on Friday.

Parents had run to a nearby school to collect their children and pre-school children had even urinated as a result of the shock, the public said.

It is learned that the Kalawanchikudy Police had advised the STF not to diffuse bombs during school hours, but the bomb disposal squad had gone ahead despite this advice.

The STF, however, had informed the principal of the Periya Kallar Central College of what they were going to do. The principal informed the children, but the public were ignorant.

The Kalawanchikudy Police had rushed to the scene and brought the situation under control.
