A senior police officer gave this information on Sunday. The age of all the arrested youths is said to be 18 to 19 years. The reason for the incident is said to be a dispute between the youths over some issue. The biggest thing is that out of the four arrested youths, three youths have been former students of this school, in which they have carried out the incident. 10 live bombs have also been recovered from a youth.
Youth arrested in midnight
The Barrackpore Police Commissionerate official said that the youths have been arrested after raids in Kamarhati and Titagarh areas around midnight on Saturday. The age of the accused is 18-19 years. Police said that ‘we are trying to find out all possible aspects by questioning them. One of the arrested youths is from Kamarhati, while the rest are from Titagarh.
The bomb blast happened on Saturday
Classes were going on on Saturday during which a bomb blast took place on the roof of the school building. Police said that there were no casualties in the incident when a country-made bomb went off, as students and teachers were in rooms located on the first two floors of the three-storey building of the school.
The official said that preliminary investigation revealed that the accused had earlier planned to throw a bomb at the school gate. But there was a large crowd, so he changed his mind and climbed on the roof of a nearby building to carry out the bomb blast and threw a bomb on the roof of the school.
10 bombs recovered from youth
The officer said that three of the arrested youths are former students of the same school. Personal enmity between the accused and some other students of the school is believed to be the primary motive behind the incident. He said that during the search operation at the residence of one of the accused, 10 country-made bombs were found.
Politics started between BJP-TMC
Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national vice-president Dilip Ghosh said Saturday’s incident points to the fact that “even school students in West Bengal cannot feel safe”. Ghosh claimed, “The education sector in the state has started its last journey under the Trinamool Congress (TMC) rule… youth are roaming around with pistols and bombs… as there is no employment in West Bengal.” ”
Countering Ghosh’s remarks, TMC MP Saugata Roy said the police is doing its job and investigation is on. The Lok Sabha member from Dum Dum alleged, “BJP should not politicize it, which gives protection to miscreants.”
