Kolkata: Some miscreants hurled country-made bombs at the residence of BJP MP Arjun Singh at Barrackpore in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district on Wednesday.
According to locals, some miscreants hurled close to three crude bombs at the main entrance in the wee hours of Wednesday morning.
While no member of Arjun Singh’s family was hurt, the incident took place in presence of central security right outside the gate. Singh has been provided security cover by the Central government.
Immediately after the incident, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar took to Twitter and wrote, “Wanton violence in West Bengal shows no sign of abating. Bomb explosions as this morning outside residence of Member Parliament Arjun Singh is worrisome on law and order. Expect prompt action by West Bengal Police. As regards his security the issue has earlier been flagged.”
