The homemade bomb which exploded at the Puduraya bus terminal on Thursday has been described as crude and amateurish, and not the work of professionals. Acting city police chief SAC I Zulhasnan Najib Baharuddin said the bomb was believed to be a combination of saltpetre and motorcycle battery, something easily learnt from the Internet. "We are still gathering information and have several teams working on the case, including the bomb disposal unit and a forensic team. "Nothing has been established yet, the motive and culprit remain unknown although we are working round-the-clock," he said. Zulhasnan said the public should not be alarmed, adding, however, that they should alert the police if they noticed anything suspicious or wires attached to packages or boxes. Saltpetre is a salty-tasting white powder generally used to preserve meats. However, it is also used in the production of explosives.
