Suri (WB), June 2: A number of crude bombs exploded at Lokpur in Birbhum district early today but there was no casualty.

A senior police officer said several bombs went off in a courtyard of a construction at around 2 am triggering panic in the village.


However, no body was recovered from the site nor was anyone found to be injured.

The area, a political turf of supremacy between the ruling Trinamool Congress and CPI(M) had also some abandoned coal mines and was near the Jharkhand border.
