Police earlier arrested three others including two women in connection with the blast that occurred in a house in Khagragarh area killing two suspected militants.
Besides the CID, a composite task force comprising officers from various state investigating agencies have been constituted to probe the incident for which the Mamata Banerjee led state government has been receiving flak from the opposition.
