BJP on Thursday advised the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government of West Bengal to agree to an investigation into the Khagragarh blast episode of October 2 by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Addressing a public meeting in Burdwan town, BJP state president Rahul Sinha claimed that TMC did not want an NIA probe as its links with the terrorists would be exposed.

However, he did not elaborate on the alleged terrorist links but said the state government should not try to cover up the incident by continuing with a CID investigation.

Instead, it should agree to the NIA probe as it is a case of war against the state, Sinha said.
