The accused kid allegedly told police that they hurled a bomb at the school as a joke. The incident occurred at Free India High School on South Station Road in Titagarh, North 24 Parganas, West Bengal.
Titagarh WB, September 17: A group of ex-students detonated a bomb at their former school in Titagarh, West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district, in an absurd act of “fun.” Following a tremendous uproar over the occurrence, all four suspects have been taken into custody.
On Saturday, a bomb explosion shook a school building in West Bengal’s North 24 Paraganas, sending pupils and staff into a state of panic. When classes at Titagarh High School began at approximately 11.45 a.m., homemade bombs allegedly were thrown on the building’s roof.
As soon as they arrived at the school, senior police officers from the Barrackpore Police Commissionerate began an investigation into the occurrence. When the school was visited, Barrackpore MP Arjun Singh claimed that the effort to endanger the institution or its officials was made by throwing homemade bombs over the roof of the school. The MP claimed that the police would quickly catch the offenders. The school’s roof saw an explosion from a rudimentary bomb, but no one was hurt.
In response to the MP’s allegations, Hooghly BJP MP Locket Chatterjee stated that crude bomb explosions were occurring everywhere and that even tiny children were not spared. Sujan Chakraborty, leader of the CPI(M), claimed that West Bengal was sitting on a pile of gunpowder, with daily explosions.
According to reports, the accused teenager told authorities that they hurled a bomb at the school as a prank. The event occurred on South Station Road in Titagarh, North 24 Parganas, at the Free India High School. One of the four students arrested by police within 24 hours of the incident is a former student. The accused are all between the ages of 18 and 20. Mohammad Ayron, Sheikh Bablu, Mohammad Sadiq, and Rohan have been identified.
After the explosion on Saturday, police gathered CCTV footage of the neighborhood. CCTV images were used to first identify one of the accused teens. On Sunday night, he was taken into custody. The other three implicated were identified after questioning the young man. During the police interrogation, they all admitted to the bombings.
