The recent series of explosions at a convention of Jehova's Witnesses in Kerala and the subsequent arrest of a man named Martin Dominic.
A series of explosions occurred at a convention of Jehova's Witnesses in Kalamassery, Kerala, killing three people and injuring 50 others.

Martin surrendered to the police and provided evidence, making it an open-and-shut case for the investigators.
A special investigation team has been constituted to look into all possible angles, including if it was a renegade's solitary mission.
The National Investigation Agency and National Security Guard have started their work on the case.
