A bomb squad looked over the area and said 

“We did not find any trace of explosive substances, so we ruled out the possibility that explosives caused the blast. We will wait for a final autopsy report on the body of driver Kamaraj and the report from the forensic lab to confirm what triggered the explosion.”
