Explosive found in Uttar Pradesh Assembly

CM orders NIA probe

by Amar Sehgal

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister (CM) Yogi Adityanath has called for a National Investigation Agency (NIA) probe following a major security lapse where an explosive substance was found near one of the benches of the state Assembly on 14 July. The white powder, which was found to be a dangerous plastic explosive Pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), had apparently been missed by the House security and dog squads. According to Assembly speaker Hriday Narain Dixit, Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) and Quick Response Teams will be deployed at Assembly premises.
