    You very much said it right... Why somebody will park a bomb loaded car near a house where there are full of security and a house which is fully secured??? It is quiet obvious that this is a pre-planned by the greedy political party or you can say by greedy BJP party. Beside that within no time ED/CBI/NIA and what not jumps in into this case. While no one is questioning Arnab the barking dog for his deeds.
