Bomb service personnel are examining the device, planted by some unidentified persons, Director General of Police P Kamaraj told media persons.

Two wires were found connected to the pipe-like device which was sealed at both the ends. "The report of the bomb detection and disposal squad is awaited for follow up action," he said after visiting the residence of Narayanasamy, who is in Delhi.
