KOLKATA: A prime accused in the Burdwan blast Alima Bibi, currently  lodged in Alipore women jail, has delivered a baby boy, jail officials said today.

Alima Bibi along with Rajira Bibi were arrested from Khargragarh in  Burdwan for being allegedly involved in the blasts on October 2 last year.

"Alima Bibi has delivered a baby boy in hospital few months back. She was taken to a hospital as the jail hospital doesn't have facilities to deliver child. She is now being given special diet as per court ruling in case of inmates who give birth. Both the baby and Alima are doing fine," said a senior official of state correctional home department.

According to the official, the news was kept under wraps considering the sensitivity of the blast case.
