Bengal firecracker factory blast accused dies during treatment in Cuttack

Cuttack: Krishnapada Bag alias Bhanu, the prime accused in the explosion at an illegal firecracker factory at Egra in East Midnapore district of West Bengal, died while undergoing treatment at a private hospital here.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of West Bengal Police had yesterday arrested him from a private nursing home in the city, where he was admitted after getting injured in that explosion.

Immediately after the blast at the illegal firecracker factory on Tuesday, Bhanu escaped along with his son and close associates.

Although initially, the CID sleuths who arrested him thought of shifting him to a hospital in Kolkata, the doctors attending him at the nursing home in Cuttack said that his condition was too critical for transfer.

With the death of Bhanu, the toll in the mishap rose to 10.
