Noor Hossain, owner of the factory, has been arrested from Amdanga area in the district on Friday night and a suo motu case of accidental murder along with other sections has been registered against him, a senior police officer said.

"We are interrogating Noor Hossain," the officer said, adding that a forensic team will visit the explosion site on Saturday.

West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar earlier in the day sought a probe into the explosion, saying the administration should be held accountable as there are allegations that crude bombs were being manufactured in the factory.
