New Delhi, March 2 : Almost 13 days after West Bengal Minister Jakir Hossain and several others were seriously injured in a bomb blast at Nimtita railway station in poll-bound West Bengal, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday took over the probe.
An NIA spokesperson here said that the anti-terror probe agency has taken over the probe into the incident of the blast at the Nimtita railway station.
At least 22 people including Hossain were injured in the bomb explosion at the Nimtita railway station on February 17.
The case was initially registered as an FIR under several sections of the Indian Penal Code and Explosive Substance Act against unknown miscreants at Azimganj Government Rail Police (GRP) police station in Murshidabad district on the statement of Mohammad Allarakha.
According to the police, a bomb was thrown on Hossain when he was waiting at a platform of the Nimtita railway station to board a Kolkata-bound train at around 10 p.m.
The minister and the two other injured persons were first taken to Jangipur sub-divisional Hospital, then to a hospital in Kolkata. Hossain reportedly sustained injuries on the left side of his body, mainly on his limbs.
