Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh Raja Warring today said that the live bomb found near the residence of the Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann was a cause of grave concern.

A live bombshell was found near Kansal and Nayagaon T-point in Chandigarh on Monday evening, officials said, adding the area, where the bombshell was found was not more than 2 km from Punjab chief minister Bhagwant Mann’s residence.

“If those people have the audacity to place a live bomb near the CM’s residence, they can be up to anything”, Warring warned in a statement, while hoping that the matter will be probed seriously and thoroughly and investigations taken to logical conclusion.

The PCC president said, although the area falls under the union territory of Chandigarh, but the way it was placed close to Punjab CM’s residence and helipad and also the Civil Secretariat is a cause of concern, which should not be taken lightly.
