RAIPUR: A search team of para-military forces and the Chhattisgarh police on Monday found five bombs on a jungle road in Maoist insurgency-hit Bastar region’s Kanker district, police said.
“Tiffin bombs were kept on a jungle road in Koilibera area. The bombs were recovered by a search contingent of the Border Security Force (BSF) and the district force,” an official at the police headquarters here told IANS.
“Three bombs of about four kg and two of about two kg weight were defused immediately,” the official said, adding, “these bombs would have made devastating impact if exploded.”
He said Maoists had kept the bombs to target the police team that routinely searches the forested areas of Sulangi, about 280 km from here.
