The explosion in Khagragarh, near Burdwan town in West Bengal, which killed two persons involved in bomb making, is a very serious issue.  There are sufficient grounds to believe that extremist elements are involved.  The concerned house is owned by a Trinamool Congress worker and it is alleged that a TMC office used to function from the garage in the house.

The way in which the Burdwan Superintendent of Police and other state police officials have dealt with the incident has raised doubts and questions.

It is essential, therefore, that the investigation into the incident be handed over to the National Intelligence Agency as this concerns the country’s security. No effort should be spared to uncover the forces behind the bomb-making centre.
