SURI: At least seven West Bengal ruling Trinamool Congress workers, accused of their connection in bomb explosion at the party office at Kankortalla under Birbhum district, have been arrested, police said today.

The regional single-story brick-built TMC party office at an isolated area of Borwa village under Kankortalla flattened following a massive explosion around 1030 hours on Monday.

However, there had been no casualty in the explosion when high powered explosives, perhaps stored in the party office, went off accidentally.
