Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 29: BJP leader L K Advani, whose yatra route was changed following detection of a powerful pipe-bomb near Madurai, today (Oct 29) said the matter must be thoroughly probed and the culprits traced.

Narrating the sequence of events that led his yatra route to be changed in Madurai, Advani said, "Tamil Nadu Police need to be complimented for recovery of the bomb and advising our people to change the route."

"But I hope those behind are located and the matter is investigated thoroughly", he told reporters here. 83-year-old Advani, who enjoys the highest Z-plus category security and is on countrywide anti-corruption yatra, changed his route after the five-feet long bomb, concealed by grass and a saree, was found under the culvert at Alampatti near Tirumangalam, 30 km from Madurai, yesterday.

The bomb was later defused. One person, identified as Nehru, was detained and questioned by police which registered an attempt to murder case against some unidentifed persons.
