Security personnel on Saturday found explosives in Saranda forest before a survey in Maoist-hit villages to implement development schemes in West Singhbhum district.

“Two boxes of gelatin sticks and boosters were found from Tirilposi and two landmines weighing 20 kg each were found from Tirilposi-Digha in Saranda forest in Maoist-hit Manoharpur police station,” DIG (CRPF) Bhanu Pratap Singh said.

He said the anti-Maoist operation was continuing in Saranda forest, which was recaptured from the clutches of the Maoists recently.

In an attempt to implement the action plan, Mr. Singh said four teams of the State government have been conducting survey in the affected areas.
