2 killed, 5 injured while making bombs in West Bengal's Murshidabad dist
Murshidabad/UNI: At least two people were killed and five sustained wounds late last night while making crude bombs and stocking them in a house at Suti village in this district, police said today.
The house collapsed under the impact of the explosion and people were awoken from their sleep.
The villagers rescued the injured people and rushed them to Suti Mohokuma hospital where the medics pronounced two of them dead on arrival.
The dead have been identified as Maharul Sheikh and Taiful Sheikh.
One of the critically injured has been shifted to Murshidabad Medical College and Hospital with splinter wounds.
Police investigating the explosion found the dead and the injured were not local people.
Sources said all of them might be the professional crude bomb makers, who had been hired by one of the villagers of Suti, which often witnesses bloody political clashes.
The area has been tense and a police picket has been set up to maintain law and order in the area, sources said.
