State secretariat sources had said that Doval was likely to meet Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and senior state officials at the state secretariat on Monday.

The NIA had on Friday said that the arrested persons and their associates were members of terror group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh, who were making IEDs to be transported to the neighbouring country for possible terror attacks.

The visit comes ahead of the Union government's decision to send a report to Bangladesh following a request from that country in this regard.

NIA DG had visited Burdwan and Murhsidabad on Friday last to review the investigation and evolve strategies regarding arrest of the absconding accused persons.

Three persons, including two women - one of them the widow of a suspected terrorist who died in the blast - were arrested and interrogated by the NIA.
