Four people killed in homemade bomb blast in India

“Four people were killed and six others injured when the bombs they were making exploded
in a house at Baisnabnagar village,” Anuj Sharma, West Bengal additional director general of police, told AFP

“The explosion rocked the area and damaged the house.

” Police were investigating the reasons for the bombmaking but no arrests have been made so far, Sharma said. 

West Bengal is set to hold the final phase of staggered state elections on Thursday. Homemade bombs are sometimes planted by workers from rival political parties to intimidate voters ahead of polling day. 

India has sent extra security forces to West Bengal for the election. 

Chief minister Mamata Banerjee is battling left-wing rivals and the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party, which rules at national level. Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress party has also been hit by bitter infighting among its rival factions.
