Kolkata, Jul 26: Terrorists have been trying all new techniques for attacks. They are constantly adopting new techniques to camouflage bombs. Keeping this in focus, the WB govt is trying to put in place a system by which perfumes and deodorants arriving as gifts at the residences or offices of dignitaries and senior officials are not opened there.

According to an advisory sent by the union ministry of home affairs (MHA), such stuffs could be explosive substances. A light pressure on the nozzle is sufficient to cause an explosion.

“We received the perfume bomb alert from the ministry of home affairs. This is altogether a new kind of deadly weapon. Terrorists are constantly adopting new techniques to camouflage bombs. We are putting in our best efforts to prevent such attacks," said Virendra, director (security), West Bengal.

In fact, it has been warned that the perfume containers developed by the terrorists looks genuine. “In the present scenario, one cannot assume even innocuous-looking items (to be) safe. Security personnel should suspect everything which passes through their sight, and check everything thoroughly," the MHA digest said.
