Jalpaiguri: Seven people were killed when a bomb exploded near Jalpaiguri town in West Bengal.

The bomb exploded - reportedly from a bicycle - at 7 pm in the evening.

Police are suspecting the role of Kamtapur Liberation Organisation (KLO) militants. "We suspect KLO militants are behind the blast. Recently some of their activists have been arrested. The blast could be a retaliatory action on their part," said Inspector General of Police, North Bengal, Sashikant Pujari.

District Deputy Superintendent of Police Prabhat Chakraborty told news agencies that six people were injured in the explosion. They have been admitted in Jalpaiguri District Hospital.
