Some miscreants hurled crude bombs at BJP MP Arjun Singh’s residence, situated at Barrackpore in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal last week. According to locals, some miscreants hurled close to three crude bombs at the main entrance in the wee hours of Wednesday last. While no member of Arjun Singh’s family was hurt, the incident took place in presence of central security right outside the gate. Singh has been provided security cover by the Central government. Immediately after the incident, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar took to Twitter and wrote, “Wanton violence in West Bengal shows no sign of abating. Bomb explosions outside residence of Member Parliament Arjun Singh is worrisome on law and order. Expect prompt action by West Bengal Police. As regards his security the issue has earlier been flagged.”
