NEW DELHI: The BJP today accused the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal of turning the state into a safe haven for anti-national and Jihadi activities.           

Citing the October 2 blast in Burdwan in West Bengal and alleged recovery of IEDs, mobile devices and Jihadi literature from the house of a TMC worker, the party charged the state government with destroying the evidence and not handing it over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for probe.       

BJP Secretary Siddharth Nath Singh alleged that the Burdwan police instead of handing over to the NIA the materials recovered, took away the entire evidence and destroyed it.   

"Why was the NIA informed almost a day late?" he asked.    

Posing questions to Banerjee, he sought clarifications on whether or not the house from where the recoveries were made belonged to a TMC cadre.         

"Did it not have a TMC office on the ground floor?" he asked.          

Attacking Banerjee, the BJP leader charged her with protecting those who stood accused of laundering money.          

"We can safely conclude that West Bengal under Mamata Banerjee's rule has become a safe haven for anti-national elements and Jihadi activities," Singh said.      

Two suspected militants were killed and another was injured in the explosion in the house where they were living on October 2 in Burdwan town. The CID of West Bengal police is looking into possible involvement of terror outfits like LeT and HuJI in the incident.
