"The police department has recommended precautionary measures; consequently, two metal detectors have been installed," Raghavendra said, adding that some dignitaries, including ministers, are expected to attend in the evening.

"We've implemented similar safety measures across all our cafes. Two individuals are assigned to monitor customer activities, observing both their belongings and behaviour," he added.

"The investigation is progressing rapidly, and we are confident that the perpetrators will be apprehended soon," Raghavendra said, talking about the ongoing investigation.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken four jailed terror suspects into custody for interrogation in the Rameshwaram Cafe blast in Bengaluru after discovering potential connections between the incident and Islamic State's Ballari (in Karnataka) module.

On March 4, the Home Ministry decided to hand over the blast case to the anti-terror agency. The NIA has detained Minaz alias Sulaiman, Syed Sameer, Anas Iqbal Sheikh and Shaan Rehaman for questioning in the blast case
