Burdwan blast, NIA

Kolkata: One person was killed and two others were injured in West Bengal’s Burdwan district when crude bombs stored in a house exploded, police said on Sunday. The incident happened in Katwa, around 150 km from Kolkata, on Saturday night.

“One person was killed and two others were injured. We found nine crude bombs in the house,” Superintendent of Police (Burdwan) Kunal Agarwal said. No arrest has been made so far.

A similar blast in a house in Khagragarh area of the district on October 2 last year led the National Investigation Agency to unravel a terror module involving the Jamaat-ul-Mujahedeen of Bangladesh.
