Chennai police arrested a 29 year old IT employee for allegedly setting off a mini bomb in an IT park where his office is situated after his plans to extort money from his employers failed. Reportedly the incident happened on June 7 in Mahindra World City, an Information technology Special Economic Zone (SEZ) near Singaperumal Koil in the outskirts of Chennai. Furthermore karthikeyan, an employee who worked in an IT firm in the business park, was in immediate need of Rs 50 lakh for personal purposes and he had sent an email to his employers requesting for the money.
