    In a major security breach in Uttar Pradesh Assembly, an explosive was found by the security personnel with the help of dog squad on July 12 in the premises. As per reports, 150 grams of white powder, wrapped in small plastic bag, was found in the Assembly. Later, it was sent to forensic lab which confirmed the presence of PETN, which is a powerful explosive.

    CM Adityanath, while confirming that an explosive, by the name of Pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), was indeed found in the Assembly, pressed for more vigilance in Uttar Pradesh, more particularly in the Assembly and rued the absence of a Quick Response Team (QRT) for the state.

    "The packet of the explosive was found under the chair of the Opposition's leader. It was 150 gm of PETN. 500 gm of PETN is enough to blow the whole Assembly off. This shows the severity of the situation. I suggest that everybody present in the Assembly should be investigated by the police and that the NIA should investigate into the matter," he said.

    "It's unfortunate that the largest Assembly of the country doesn't have a QRT," he added.

    Adityanath also said that this incident could be in connivance with a terrorist or militant group and that the security of the state and the country is paramount.

    Aditynath also urged the officials to not compromise on the security of the state and the nation, more so considering the current situation of the country.

    Â

    UP Assembly speaker Hridaya Narain Dixit has said provincial armed constabulary and Quick Response Teams will be deployed at Assembly premises.

    The state government has beefed up the security in the entire state specially in the western and poorvanchal region, in view of the Kanwar Yatra in progess.

    Yogi has also assured protection to the devotees, who participate in thousands in the one-month religious event, Saavan.


    WHAT IS PETN
    1. PETN (Pentaerythritol Trinitrate ) is one of the most powerful explosives and is very difficult to detect. Due to its plastic nature, the explosive can easily pass metal detectors and security check points.
    2. PETN is non-metallic so it does not show up in x-ray machines. Also the bomb-sniffing dogs cannot detect it because of its low pressure molecules.
    3. The small quantities of this explosive can cause enormous damages. It is so deadly that even 100 grams of PETN is enough to blast a car.
    4. PETN is relatively stable and is detonated either by heat or a shockwave.
    5. Very hard-to-detect plastic-based explosive PETN was used in September 2011 Delhi High Court blast.
    6. PETN was also used in the bomb plot on a Northwest Airlines Flight 253 in which a passenger tried to set off plastic explosives sewn to his underwear in 2009.
    7. It was also used by terrorist Richard Reid, commonly known as the 'shoe bomber', in a bid to blast off American Airlines Flight 63 on December 22, 2001.
    The same explosive was also found in two cargo planes from Yemen to the US in October 2010.

    For last 15 yrs, UP was being run by a mafia of muslim Dons who got directly funded by ISI. I will not be surprised if the investigation finds some MLA of SP/BSP responsible for fitting this device.

    CM Yogi informs the assembly about explosives being found.


    The explosive was found underneath the chair of leader of the opposition. CM Yogi sits right in front of the opposition leader.

    Ex-MLAs are now barred from entry to the legislative assembly.

    Security of Parliament in Delhi has been increased.

    It was found under the chair of opposition leader. He sits right in front of CM. Only MLAs and their secretaries are allowed to go there.

    Na, plan was to probably assassinate Yogi. Killing AY is just to protect themselves from being blamed..

    Conspiracy theory alert:
    They probably planned to assemble the bomb inside the parliament,the explosive was fortunately found before it was made active.
    We should also ask who holds the other parts of the bomb or were they already smuggled in already.
    Akhilesh or his cronies probably brought it in thinking it can go undetected,they probably thought the safest place to hide the most critical part of the bomb would be under his seat.

    Yogi was the target.

    Hope they got enough CCTV coverage, and increase it now if not enough to determine who attempted this.

    India needs something like US Marshal service, who report only to federal court system....all legislative buildings and courts should come only under their purview security-wise.
