Jan 7, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Maryland witnessed one of the scariest incidents right in the beginning of the year, as two packets, as small as a book, exploded within a short span of tine at the Government building and Department of Transportation headquarters in Annapolis and Hanover consecutively.
When opened, the two packages emitted smoke and sulfur odor, that burned the hands of four of the the employees who touched them. The injured have been admitted to the hospital, and fortunately, no one was seriously hurt. However, the FBI are yet to figure out what was the main motive behind such notoriety, and who conducted them. On the other hand, the conspiracy theorists are under the impression that this explosion was designed by the government with the help of FBI. One of the parcels was reportedly meant for Gov. Martin O’Malley, that complained about the highway signs that read “Report Suspicious Activity”. Dutch Ruppersberger, a representative from the House Intelligence Committee, said that considering the investigations and conclusions that they have derived so far, there are no connections with any terrorist organizations. They believe that it has been done by an individual, who for some reasons was dissatisfied with the government.
Right now, the investigation is being conducted by FBI’s joint terrorism task force, who are intensely scrutinizing the matter. William Barnard, state fire marshal said that one of these packets will be taken to ab FBI lab at Quantico, for further investigation. As of now, Maryland mail rooms have been quarantined by the investigators, to find out, who had sent these explosives. Cate Conroy, a representative from the Veterans Affairs Department, which is situated just next to governor’s mailroom, said that the employees left the place with calm orientation when they got to know about the explosion. However, they were allowed to enter the building within a few hours.
