DGP Dilbag Singh told that earlier the perfume bomb had come into the discussion many times, but was never recovered.

The DGP of Jammu and Kashmir said that this is the first time in the whole country that a perfume bomb has been recovered from a terrorist.
How perfume bomb is made
According to the Jammu and Kashmir Police, only a perfume bomb was used in the Narwal blast. Arif had earlier carried out the bus blasts in Shastri Nagar and Katra. He is the handler of Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir for 3 years. Police said that to prepare the perfume improvised explosive device, the terrorists take an empty bottle of perfume and put the explosive device in it. People do not know much about this bomb. That’s why it is very easy for terrorists to take it from one place to another and plant it.
How deadly is the perfume IED
The IED gets activated when the lid of the perfume bomb is pressed or opened. After this, there is an explosion. According to the police, its effect is widespread. It is so deadly that even the rags of the body of the people near it can fly away. It is almost impossible to tell by looking at a perfume bomb that it may contain a bomb. Even before this, the perfume bomb has come into the discussion.
The police have already received alerts about perfume bomb blasts.
When did the perfume bomb first come into the limelight?
The last alert regarding the perfume bomb was issued in the year 2011 by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security. After this, every passenger at Mumbai airport was allowed to proceed only after using the perfume available to him. In the same year, the police in Kolkata collected perfume bottles from all over the city. Along with this, security arrangements were increased in Kolkata airport and congested areas.
