Two suspected dacoits were injured when a bomb in their possession went off inside a rest house here on Thursday, the police said.
The two belonged to a five-member gang that came here at the ‘Harkhen Kumar Jaini Dharmashala’ from West Bengal in the early hours, they said.
“Investigations so far have revealed that the five persons were criminals and they had come here from the neighbouring State to loot a bank. The bomb was kept inside a bag which went off while they were unpacking,” SP Bhojpur, Avakash Kumar said.
Among the injured, one was referred to the PMCH hospital in Patna as his condition was critical while the other was undergoing treatment at the Ara Sadar Hospital, the SP said.
