Patna, Aug 7 IANS | 1 month ago

Over 4,200 detonators were recovered Thursday in Bihar's Rohtas district, police said.


Rohtas Superintendent of Police Chandan Kumar Kushwaha said a huge quantity of explosives, including 4,225 detonators, 1,200 gelatin sticks and 15 kg ammonium nitrate, was recovered.

Acting on a tip-off, a police team raided a house in Karbandia locality near Sasaram, the district headquarter. One man was also arrested in this connection.

Last week also police had recovered a huge quantity of explosives, including 3,550 detonators, 1,791 gelatin sticks and 5 kg ammonium nitrate, from a village near Sasaram.

Police had arrested three people in this connection.

Rohtas is considered to be a Maoists stronghold.

According to police, recovered material, including ammonium nitrate, is used for making improvised explosive devices and bombs.

The state police along with the central paramilitary forces have intensified combing operations against Maoists in different parts of Bihar.

Last month, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in a joint operation with Bihar Police recovered a huge cache of explosives from a Maoists hideout in Gaya district.
