Tripura: Suspicious Bag Triggers Bomb Scare At Agartala Airport

Agartala: In a breaking development, a suspicious bag has been found near the Maharaja Bir Bikram airport in Agartala, amid political violence and a BJP-TMC faceoff in Tripura. The bag was found at the parking lot where TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee’s vehicles were parked. After reports of the suspicious bag being found at the Agartala airport surfaced, the bomb squad and airport security were rushed to the spot to look for possible explosives planted ahead of Banerjee’s visit to the city.

“A suspicious bag has been found in Agartala Airport at around 9:45 am. Someone has left the bag on the site which led to suspicion that it could contain explosives. The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) team has cordoned off the whole premises and entry-exit routes have been modified. The disposal team is at work and the airport Director shall brief the press shortly,” MBB Airport Manager Jempu Hoakip was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. 

However, no explosive material has been found in the region and the airport has been cordoned off.

The TMC has scheduled a number of rallies in Agartala despite the Tripura Police denying permission for any political events fearing violence.
