New Delhi, Aug 24. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday said that it has filed charge sheet against two people in connection with bomb blast at Nimtita railway station in West Bengal ahead of the assembly elections earlier this year.

An NIA spokesperson said that the agency has filed a charge sheet against — Sahidul Islam and Abu Samad, both residents of Murshidabad under several sections of IPC, UA(P) Act and Explosive Substance Act.

The case relates to an IED blast on February 17 this year at Nimtita Railway Station in Bengal’s Murshidabad district resulting in serious injuries to 22 persons including then state minister Jakir Hossain.

The IED was triggered when Hossain along with 70 supporters of Trinamool Congress was entering Platform number two and three at Nimtita Railway Station for boarding Teesta Torsa Express for onward journey to Kolkata.

A case was registered by the GRPS at Murshidabad. NIA had taken over the probe on March 2 this year.

The official said that during probe it was revealed that Islam and Samad had hatched a criminal conspiracy to kill Hossain, the then West Bengal Minister of Labour and his supporters in order to strike terror in the minds of the people and to derail the impending Assembly Election (March-April, 2021).

The official said that Islam had procured materials for making IED from the local shops and had held various meetings with Samad for final selection of site for executing the conspiracy.

“Both the accused persons had also unsuccessfully tried to destroy the phones used by them for misleading the investigation agency,” he said.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
