Dum Dum (West Bengal) [India], Oct 14 (ANI): A 43-year-old man who was injured in the explosion which took place earlier this month in Dum Dum passes away on Sunday, taking the death toll to two.
On October 2, a high-intensity explosion had occurred in a fruit stall stationed in the market, leaving an eight-year-old boy dead and over ten injured.
Police investigating the matter said the cause of the blast could not be ascertained, adding that there was no smell of gunpowder post the explosion.
While West Bengal Technical Education Minister Purnendu Basu claimed that the Dum Dum blast was similar to the ones orchestrated by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Mukul Roy retaliated saying the minister should get a National Investigation Agency (NIA) inquiry done into the matter.
