The driver noticed a polythene bag containing some objects lying under his car seat. The vehicle was parked in the compound of the Central School which is serving as the DCRC office for the Assembly polls, slated for tomorrow.

The driver was about to start the car for picking up the polling personnel who had assembled at the DCRC office. He raised a hue and cry following which people rushed to the spot.

A bomb squad arrived and took away the polythene bag. Confirming the incident, ADM, General, Debotosh Dutta, said he was rushing to the spot.

Meanwhile, the assembled drivers of the vehicles have refused to drive demanding adequate security, leading to the suspension of movement of polling personnel.
