National Security Adviser Ajit Doval is expected to visit the blast site in Bardhaman in West Bengal and meet Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday. He is also expected to meet officers of the Central agencies in Kolkata. This is the second time the NSA is coming to Kolkata since the Trinamool Congress came to power in 2011.

While in 2011, the then NSA Shivshankar Menon came to discuss the issue of Teesta water-sharing with Bangladesh, Mr. Doval is coming to discuss the security situation following increased tensions after the blast in Bardhaman earlier this month and identification of 58 suspected terror modules in the border State. The NIA has said proscribed Bangladesh terror group JMB was responsible for the blasts. Terror modules in West Bengal were making explosive devices to be used in Bangladesh.
