        @rajesh. Obviously, some cow bhakt was practising bomb making. Send the NIA to protect the cow shed and create an alibi for the cows who are actually gadhas.

            There are gl panes and not planes as per the article. There is nothing mysterious, the only mystery is to nail the terrorists who linger in the campus.

                Very shocking incident which must be investigated for remedial measures as appropriate. However, the incident can be one more to point to accuracy of this writer’s alert prediction in article “ 2016 – a woeful year for India with slight cheer at the end” published on 18 January 2016 in online magazine thesop. Just reproducing the related part of prediction from the article : “ Southern India also looks to be having some problems. Tamil Nadu , Panaji , Goa , Sethupuram like places may perhaps be in focus for some concerns of stress during February- March also”.
