NSA Ajit Doval to meet Mamata over Burdwan blast probe

27 Oct 2014


Kolkata, Oct 27:: National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval is scheduled to visit West Bengal on Monday in connection with the Khagragarh blast in Burdwan district on October 2 that raised fears about a terror plot with international links, media reports said.

 Doval may also visit Burdwan blast site, sources said.


The NSA will meet Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as well to discuss lapses in the blast probe by the state police. Doval is also likely to urge the CM to cooperate with central investigators.


Earlier, National Investigation Agency (NIA) chief Sharad Kumar had inspected the house in Burdwan where the blast occurred.


The agency later had said, issuing a press communiqué, that all four arrested persons in connection with the blast are members of the terror group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh and they were preparing crude bombs to transport them to Bangladesh for possible terror attacks.
