In a shocking turn of events, Dominic Martin, the individual accused in the Kerala serial blasts, has surrendered to the Kerala police, confessing to planting explosives at a Christian religious gathering. He has been remanded to judicial custody until November 29 after his formal arrest on Monday.

Martin, a former member of Jehovah’s Witnesses, surrendered to the police in Thrissur district, Kerala, one day following the multiple blasts at a convention organized by the religious group in Kalamassery on Sunday morning.

The accused, who now faces charges under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, the Explosives Act, and murder charges, made his motives clear during a Facebook Live broadcast before surrendering. In the live video that has since been taken down, Martin stated, “A bomb blast occurred at a convention organized by the Jehovah Witnesses group, resulting in significant destruction. I take full responsibility for the event. I am conducting this Facebook Live to explain why I committed this act.”

Martin went on to explain that his actions were driven by his perception of the Jehovah’s Witnesses as having “anti-national” ideals. He claimed to have tried to bring his concerns to their attention, urging them to “mend their ways” but received no response. “Six years ago, I realized that this organization was wrong, and its teachings were highly anti-national,” he said during the broadcast.

The investigation into this shocking incident is ongoing, as authorities delve deeper into the motives behind the attack and assess the full extent of the damage caused by the explosions. Martin’s arrest and confession have sent shockwaves throughout the region, prompting questions about the broader implications of this act of violence.
