NIA takes over probe into Murshidabad bomb attack on TMC leader Jakir Hossain


The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday took over the probe of a recent bomb blast on the Trinamool Congress leader Jakir Hossain at Nimita Railway Station in West Bengal’s Murshidabad. The NIA re-registered the case which was initially lodged on February 17 under IPC sections 326 (causing grievous hurt); 120 B (criminal conspiracy); 307 (attempt to murder); and Explosives Act Section 3 and 4 against unknown miscreants at Azimganj GRP PS, Murshidabad.
Hossain, Labour Minister of the state, and some of his supporters suffered injuries after some unidentified attackers hurled crude bombs on them while they were walking towards Nimita Railway Station to board the train for Kolkata on February 17.
The minister sustained serious injuries and was rushed to a hospital in Kolkata. The bomb explosion had also injured 21 other people. 
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said the attack on Hossain was a conspiracy while Governor Jaideep Dhankar and Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had demanded a NIA probe.
Investigation in the case continues.
