Bomb Found In Uttar Pradesh Assembly, Could Be A Terror Conspiracy

On July 12, an explosive was found in the premises of Uttar Pradesh Assembly by a security officer with the help of the dog squad. Chief Minister Yogi Aditynath called a high-level meet and said that the NIA (National Investigation Agency) should be given the charge to investigate the matter.

On Thursday, during an ongoing Assembly session, a packet was found under the seat of  Samajwadi Party MLA Manoj Pandey containing a white powder, weighing 60 grammes.

The packet was then sent to the forensic laboratory for tests where they later found that it was a plastic explosive, PETN (Pentaerythritol Tetranitrate).

According to the Deccan Chronicle, CM Adityanath said at a high-level meeting on Friday, “Strong security system must be established as this could be a terror conspiracy. Security guidelines must be issued and everyone must follow them.”

Yesterday, in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly he said: ““Everyone needs to be cautious related to security matters. Police verification needs to be done for workers in assembly. PETN explosives were found, action must be taken against those involved.”

What Is PETN?

  • Pentaerythritol Trinitrate is one of the most dangerous and powerful explosives in the world.
  • PETN can pass through metal detector easily due to its plastic nature.
  • In September 2011, PETN was used in the Delhi High Court blast.
  • PETN is the least stable of the common military explosives.
  • PETN was used in the 1980 Paris synagogue bombing.
