A bomb explodes at an abandoned police outpost. At least three people were injured. The incident took place at Kuti Ghat in Baranagar in North 24 Parganas on Saturday afternoon.
However, how the bomb came to the abandoned outpost is not clear. Police are investigating the incident.
The abandoned Baranagar outpost was being cleaned on Saturday afternoon. At that time, there was a sudden loud noise. Almost everyone panicked.
Nearby, people hurried to the spot and saw that the bomb had exploded. Three workers were injured while working at that time.
Later, they were rushed to Sagar Dutt Medical College and Hospital. The three are currently undergoing treatment there. They have been injured quite well.
Meanwhile, a large police force arrived at the scene after receiving news of a bomb blast in an abandoned house of the police outpost. Police have also informed the bomb squad along with the forensic team.
Initially, it is believed that the confiscated bomb had exploded at the Malkhana of Baranagar outpost. How the bomb came into that abandoned house is being investigated.
However, questions have already been raised as to why they did not defuse the confiscated bomb at that time.
Meanwhile, tensions have already erupted over the bombing. Many are not even blaming the stockpiling of bombs for any anti-social activities. They claim that bombings in different parts of the North 24 Parganas continue unabated.
That is why they may have stored the bombs to provide fuel. However, the whole matter is being investigated by the police.
