A cache of bombs and fire arms were recovered from a CPM office at Arambag in Hooghly Saturday afternoon.
Local Trinamool Congress supporters attacked the office and beat up CPM cadres, prompting the police to intervene. The police later locked up the CPM office.
The CPM district leadership alleged that the weapons were planted in their office by Trinamool cadres as part of the ruling party's plan to send behind bars the CPM activists who were involved in party activities despite threats from the Trinamool. Ten persons have been arrested in this connection, police said.
Sukumal Das, inspector in-charge of Arambag police station, said the police got a tip off about presence of weapons and explosives at CPM's Arambag zonal committee office located in the heart of the town. Policemen accompanied by a magistrate raided the office and recovered 60 bombs and two fire arms, he said.
