Kolkata Nagerbazar blast kills 7-yr-old boy

A seven-year-old child was killed and at least ten others injured in a high-intensity blast at Kajipara in Nagerbazar, Kolkata. The incident took place at 9.30 am outside the Trinamool Congress office which is also used by South Dum Dum Municipality chairperson Panchu Roy. The Barrackpore police Commissioner Rajesh Kumar Singh said, “Unfortunately a kid has expired and at least ten persons have been injured”. The police are yet to ascertain the nature of the blast.

Fire officials, CID and a bomb squad have been rushed to the spot. Several injured persons were admitted at R G Kar Medical Hospital. The deceased has been identified as Bibhash Ghosh (7). His mother Basanti Ghosh, who was also injured in the blast, has been admitted to the SSKM Hospital.

While TMC is blaming BJP’s hand behind the incident, the latter has refuted the allegation. State BJP leader Dilip Ghosh said, “TMC leaders are having a mania to blame BJP whenever something happens. We have seen blasts have taken place inside and outside TMC office even in the past. This incident is very unfortunate and it is very disturbing that even the main city is not secure.“

CPM leader Sujan Chakraborty condemned the incident saying, “Everyday some or the other incidents are happening. We don’t want London, can she (Mamata Banerjee) give us a secured Bangla.” A seven-year-old child was killed and at least ten others injured in a high-intensity blast at Kajipara in Nagerbazar, Kolkata.
