Earlier on Monday, a crude bomb went off while some goons were trying to make it. The explosion was huge which killed 4 bomb makers on the spot. 6 others were injured and were admitted to the Malda Medical College and Hospital. Political pressure mounted when the news of the involvement of a TMC leader was doing the rounds. As a result, the police started searching the area and discovered 2 bags full of two kinds of explosives. The bomb disposal squad was called for immediate disposal. But unfortunately the 2 officers died when those explosives took off. It has been said that the officers were not properly equipped.
