BANGALORE: A year after the attack on the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) here that left one person dead and four others injured, the police are yet to nab the main culprit. The deceased was MC Puri, a former professor
from IIT Delhi.

Talking to CyberMedia News, Gopal Hosur, Joint Commissioner of Police, said, "The investigation is going on and it’s a lengthy process, and will take some more time."

On December 28 last year, unindentified gunmen opened fire inside the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) campus where the victims along  with other participants of an international science seminar, were moving from the JN Tata Auditorium towards  the Satish Dhavan auditorium.

Following the incident, police arrested Abdul Rehman and Habib alias Mehboob in connection with the attack
but have been unable to catch the perpetrator.

Earlier this year, police had also foiled a terror plan to carry out blasts in some of the software firms in
Bangalore.

Police had seized a cache of explosives comprising 17 electronic detonators, 20 gelatin sticks, 120 gel sticks, three hand grenades and packets of iron pellets.

These incidents brought to attention the fact that academic institutions and IT companies, are on the radar of
terrorist agencies, and also the need for enhanced security in tech hubs.
