"The injured Ajit Halder, 38, who had a fruit stall in Dum Dum's Nagerbazar, succumbed to his injuries at SSKM Hospital on Sunday," the police said.

An eight-year-old boy was killed and nine others, including Halder, injured in a socket bomb blast in front of a multi-storeyed building in Nagerbazar area on October 2.
The blast that had taken place near Halder's fruit shop severely damaged at least two shops and shattered the window panes of an adjacent multi-storeyed building.
The state's Criminal Investigation Department is probing the blast.
