Titagarh Blast: State Withdraws Plea Against NIA Probe


Kolkata: In an interesting turn of the event the West Bengal government which has been vehemently opposing a NIA probe in the Titagarh blast so far, has withdrawn its plea against NIA probe from the Calcutta High Court on Friday.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has already filed chargesheet in the case. The agency has earlier claimed possible Jihadi connection in the blast. The state government on the other hand said that the blast is a mere outcome of gang war and no Jihadi link is there.
