It is alleged that a bomb was planted in the backyard of a grassroots leader’s house in Birbhum on Monday night. That’s when the explosion happened. Police arrested a grassroots leader from the spot. However, the party leadership has denied the allegations. Their counter-claim, whether the bomb was planted or was aimed at grassroots leaders and activists, will be clear only after an investigation. The BJP, however, claimed that the Trinamool leaders and activists were planting bombs to terrorize the area like the Panchayak vote. Locals alleged that a bomb had been planted at the house of Anai Sheikh, president of the area’s minority cell, last night. The bomber struck shortly after noon. Another German grassroots activist, Sheikh, was seriously injured. He was first taken to a local hospital. When his condition deteriorated, he was shifted to a hospital in Burdwan. Mallarpur police went to the spot after receiving the news of the blast. It is reported that the scene was practically cleared before they arrived. Seeing that, the locals suspected that a few more people had died in the blast. But opponents claim the body has been removed. Meanwhile, Mallarpur police arrested Anai Sheikh.

Regarding the incident, BJP’s Mayureshwar B Mandal president Sushanti Dey said, “The Trinamool was trying to sabotage the vote by creating an atmosphere of terror like the panchayat elections. Two people were killed in the blast. But that body was dumped by Trinamool Bloc president and Mayureshwar assembly candidate Abhijit Roy. ” Denying the allegations, the Trinamool Bloc president claimed, “I have heard the matter. I have asked the police to look into whether they were planting bombs or whether they were bombed. The matter will be clear only after investigation. ” However, this incident has spread panic in the area.
