Indian badminton ace PV Sindhu expressed her heartfelt condolences to those impacted by the tragic blast that occurred on Sunday during a Jehovah’s Witnesses meeting in Kalamassery, Kerala. Two people died, and around 52 people were injured in a series of three explosions at a convention center in Kerala on Sunday morning, as confirmed by the police.

“My heart goes out to those affected by the blast in Kerala. Condolences to the affected families, and hope for a quick recovery for the injured,” said PV Sindhu, the Olympic silver medalist, on her ‘X’ handle, formerly known as Twitter.

According to the latest reports, a man named Dominic Martin claimed responsibility for the blasts and surrendered to the police in Thrissur. He stated that he had planted the bomb that rocked the convention center in Kalamassery on Sunday. Before surrendering, he posted a video message on social media.

Kerala Health Minister Veena George stated that six individuals, including a twelve-year-old boy, remain in critical condition and are currently receiving vital medical treatment. In response to the incident, a four-member NIA (National Investigation Agency) team swiftly arrived at the scene to conduct a thorough investigation in collaboration with local law enforcement.
