Pinarayi Vijayan, the chief minister of Kerala, emphasized the gravity of the situation while confirming the death toll.

Details about Ernakulam Blast

Assistant Commissioner ACP Thrikkakara, also known as Baby PV, revealed to media that 40 persons were hurt in the explosions, some of them were critically injured. One person has died. Furthermore, he stated that it was verified that there were several explosions, not just one. "All investigating agencies are on the scene, and an inquiry is underway to determine whether this is a bomb burst or not. Forty-one injured, one dead, and four to five gravely injured. "The situation is under control," stated Baby PV.

A preliminary inquiry indicates that it is an IED blast, the Kerala DGP later stated.

A  subset of Christians who do not consider themselves protestants are known as "Jehovah Witnesses."  The Jehovah's Witness Convention is an annual event that consists of bigger assemblies known as "Regional Conventions," which typically last three days, from Friday to Sunday.

These conferences mostly consist of films of their preaching, dramatizations, and discourses based on the Bible.

Multiple explosions occurred in a single hallway, top intelligence sources told media, and they believe this was probably a terror strike.

All are aiming for the Jehovah community, according to sources. According to sources, they are a distinct Christian group that is simple to recognize and attack because of their differences with other communities. They also mentioned how small this group is.

The explosion occurs in the midst of the ongoing dispute over a Hamas leader's attendance at a function in Kerala. On Saturday, Hamas leader Khaled Mashal spoke at a state-organized rally against Israel's attack on the militant group and took part virtually. The event was organized by an Islamist party.
