State Minister for Home Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said India is yet to officially inform anything over the blast in India's West Bengal, in which banned outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) was allegedly involved.

He told reporters at his office on Wednesday that he was informed of the matter after an editor of an Indian newspaper had called him.

"But the Indian government is yet to inform us about anything officially. Steps will be definitely taken if they communicate. Not an inch of Bangladeshi soil will be allowed to be used by militants for terrorism activities," said the minister.

A blast on October 2 at Burdwan's Khagrhagarh left two people killed, who the Indian intelligence officials suspect to be members of the JMB.

"The BGB and the BSF hold regular meetings on different issues. The ins and outs of two countries are discussed there. Both the countries are serious about tackling militancy," Kamal told reporters at the Secretariat.

He claimed the law and order situation was under control during the Eid vacations. "No untoward incidents occurred anywhere. The law enforcers were on strict vigil all the time.
