Peel Police Release Update On Motive For Mississauga Restaurant Bombing

Last Thursday a bomb went off at the Bombay Bhel restaurant in Mississauga around 10:30 at night

Police are currently still looking for 2 suspects they believe were responsible for setting the explosive device. 

It appears though that those were responsible were not acting as part of a terrorism plot.  

There was no mention of terrorism. Don’t spread fear. They kept our vehicles but we were all released without any questioning. I guess I’ll update when I get my truck.

While police are not ruling anything out they say that right now it looks as if this was an isolated incident. 

They also have been unable to find any link that would qualify what happened as a hate crime either. 

A total of 15 people suffered injuries in the explosion but everyone has since been released from hospital.   

No one was killed as a result of the blast.

2 suspects attended the scene, detonated an Improvised Explosive Device within the restaurant. Several injured were taken to local hospital and 3 in critical condition were taken to a Toronto Trauma Centre.
