The city police has issued a stern warning to media personnel against trying to gain access to those injured in the German Bakery blast here, citing national interest, and said in case of violation, they “will have to face it.”

Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh asked media personnel not to interact with any of those injured being treated in hospitals saying, “It is absolutely against national interest."

It might create problem in investigations. We have requested all hospitals not to allow this. So this is my request and don’t do this.

“This is an official direction to all of you and if anybody does not follow it, he or she will have to face it.”

He also refused to answer any questions on the action taken by the police to avoid the attack despite intelligence inputs.
