PETN explosive in Uttar Pradesh Assembly: Yogi Adityanath government has rejected media reports which claimed a test conducted at Forensic Science Laboratory in Agra revealed that substance detected in Assembly hall is not PETN (Pentaerythritol tetranitrate) explosive, as per ANI report. The Principal Secretary (Home) has categorically said that no sample was sent to FSL Agra of substance as they do not have machines or wherewithal to conduct tests. The official said that state Forensic Science Laboratory (SFSL) at Lucknow in its report has found the substance as water insoluble. Different reagents confirmed presence of a nitrate and preliminary test conducted using explosive detection kit reported positive for PETN. The Principal Secretary (Home) further said that Infrared Spectrum and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrum tests were at SFSL Lucknow and report would come by Thursday.

    Desperate SP or Congress going to any extent against Yogi? God knows the truth. Yogi then MP was beaten up for 11 days in custody by SP CM Akhilesh. Will Indian voters ever understand what is democracy and its importance? Right voting without religion or caste or money or 'subsidy/doles' consideration can take India further in development. Modi or Yogi alone cannot do much.
