KOLKATA: A special NIA court has convicted 19 people, including four Bangladeshi citizens, in the 2014 Burdwan blast case, officials said on Wednesday.

All of them confessed to their crimes before the court, they said.

Two people were killed on October 2, 2014 in the busy Khagragarh locality of West Bengal’s Burdwan district when an improvised explosive device that they were making went off.

The house was taken on rent by banned Jamat-ul-Mujaheedin of Bangladesh (JMB) as a burqa stitching factory, they said. (AGENCIES)
