Kolkata blast: Video emerges where the circumstantial evidence is being wiped cleaned

As Kolkata still reconditions itself after the severe bomb blast in Kazipara area of Dumdum Nager Bazar which claimed the life of a nine-year-old boy leaving nine others injured, a shocking footage, uncovered by Republic TV, surfaced where men are seen with brooms cleaning up circumstantial evidence, dumping them into garbage bins and washing off the blood at the site with water.

Even as Mamata Banerjee led TMC was quick to blame the BJP and the RSS for the blast, some people could be seen cleaning up the evidence in broad daylight in presence of the media crew, locals and police personnel.

The blast took place yesterday just outside of a multi-storied building where the Chairperson of the North Dumdum municipality, Panchu Roy has an office. As per reports, Panchu Roy who considers himself to be the intended target of the bomb hinted at a political motive behind the blast and claimed that these political forces were plotting to kill him and his TMC worker.

As per initial investigation, ammonium nitrate was used in carrying out the blast. According to reports, the blast was of such intensity that even the windows of the opposite building were shattered and it put a dent on a nearby shutter door of a shop.

Barrackpore Police Commissioner Rajesh Kumar Singh who had earlier gone on records calling it a high-intensity explosion, later contradicted his own statement by calling the blast a low-intensity one.

An eyewitness had further claimed that the splinters and particles which spread around were collected by the police officials and submitted to the investigating officials. This information, however, did not surface throughout the process of investigation and now all circumstantial evidence appears to have been cleared out and the area completely sanitised, even before the forensic department could reach the spot.
