Major consignment of explosives seized in UP

Posted by Indian Vanguard on April 21, 2007

Varanasi, April 21: Police in Varanasi have seized 6,000 detonators and 400 highly explosive gelatin rods from near Ramnagar area.

The explosive were suspected to have been transported by naxalites to disrupt the ongoing Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

A major tragedy was averted as a police team on patrolling duty found these explosive materials lying abandoned in the jungle area late last night, Ramnagar police station incharge D. K. Tripathi, said.

The contraband was found near Vishwasundari bridge situated on the border of Varanasi and Chandauli district.

The seizure of explosives in the area prone to naxal activities points to the possibility that the consignment could have been brought by naxal outfits for carrying out subversive activities and vitiating the Assembly election process in the region, Tripathi said.

Another motive behind the plans of MCC could be to take revenge for the killing of their self-styled zonal commander Sanjay Kol in Chandauli district earlier this week.
