Hours after the  National Investigation Agency (NIA)  conducted raids and arrested nine Al-Qaeda operatives, West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar made some serious remarks.

Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar said that West Bengal is turning out as the home of illegal bomb-making and came down severely on the law enforcement bodies for the situation.

The governor took to the Microblogging site Twitter and said the West Bengal Police cannot escape from the accountability for the decline of the law and order. He even attached the press release on the NIA arrests.

"State has become home to illegal bomb making that has potential to unsettle democracy. Police @MamataOfficial busy in carrying out political errands and taking on opposition. Those at helm @WBPolice cannot escape their accountability for this alarming decline in law and order," his Tweet read.

The NIA nabbed nine Al-Qaeda terrorists, six terrorists from West Bengal, and three terrorists from Kerala. They were allegedly making plans to carry out attacks in major cities in India.
