Five persons were severely injured in an explosion that took place in a house at West Midnapore district in West Bengal on Monday (November 16).

The Bharatiya Janata Party has alleged that the house belonged to a Trinamool Congress (TMC) supporter and crude bombs were being made to spread violence in the area.

However, the TMC has denied all such allegations saying that miscreants had attacked the house and hurled crude bombs.

A senior police officer said, “Five persons have been injured. We have collected samples from the spot. It appears that crude bombs have exploded. Investigation is going on.”

Earlier, in October, an explosion in a local club located in the midst of a crowded residential neighbourhood in eastern-suburban Kolkata, had sent shockwaves among the residents.

West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar had alleged in September this year that the state has become home to illegal bomb-making factories.
