The initial investigations revealed that the cause of the fire which took place on a private bus in Kahagolla, Diyathalawa was a hand grenade explosion.
 
The hand grenade may have hidden inside a bag of a commuter, the investigators believe.
 
However, a senior police officer said that it could only be confirmed after the Government Analyst’s report is released.
 
19 persons were injured when the private passenger bus caught fire at Kahagolla in Diyathalawa at around 5.45 this morning (Feb. 21).
 
12 of the injured persons were security forces personnel.
 
The Military Spokesperson Brig. Sumith Atapattu meanwhile emphasized that the explosion was not an act of terror.
