A suspicious object was found outside the BJP office in Kolkata on Sunday, creating panic among the party workers. Following this, the police team, bomb squad and dog squad reached the spot.

While BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya said that a crude bomb was found outside BJP’s Kolkata office, news agency ANI reported that the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) team informed that the suspicious object found was not a bomb.

Earlier, Malviya, while posting a video in which the suspicious object can be seen, claimed that a crude bomb was found outside BJP’s office in Kolkata hours before the saffron camp’s fact-finding committee looking into the post-poll violence was set to arrive at the office.

“Crude bomb found outside BJP’s 6, Muralidhar Lane office, in the heart of Kolkata, just before the high profile fact finding committee, looking into the post-poll violence, comprising of a former Chief Minister, Cabinet Minister, DGP of UP, among others, was scheduled to visit the office,” the IT cell head said in a post on X.

“Mamata Banerjee, as Home Minister of West Bengal, is directly responsible for this lapse,” he added.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, LoP West Bengal and BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari and the victims of post-poll violence met West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose at Raj Bhavan.
