Blast at TMC booth president's house in Bengal: 3 killed, 2 injured; There is a possibility of exploding country bomb kept in the house
A blast took place at the house of Trinamool Congress (TMC) booth president Rajkumar Manna in Bhupatinagar area of Purba Medinipur district of West Bengal. Three people were killed, while two were seriously injured in the blast that took place on Friday night.
TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee is scheduled to address the people on Saturday in Contai Nagar, 1.5 km from where the accident took place in Bhupatinagar. The explosion of the bomb was so severe that the mud house with tile roof was destroyed.
The identity of the dead is yet to be ascertained, though it is believed that all those who died were TMC workers. The police have not been able to ascertain till now what caused the blast. Police are also probing the possibility that someone may have thrown a bomb at the house. It is also feared that this blast has happened due to the explosion of a crude bomb kept in the house itself.
BJP's National Vice President Dilip Ghosh has blamed TMC for this blast. He has said that wherever there is a blast, TMC leaders are involved. All anti-social elements have found a place in this party so that they can remain in power. This is not surprising.
On the other hand, Bengal BJP President Sukanta Majumdar said about this blast that the TMC leader was making crude bombs at his house, during which the blast took place. He himself also died in the accident. TMC is trying to create an atmosphere of fear before the panchayat elections. Majumdar has demanded from Home Minister Amit Shah that the matter should be investigated.
