Nalbari: Two hand grenades and as many detonators were recovered from the house of a former NDFB insurgent at a village in lower Assam's Baksa district on Monday.

On a tip-off, the police and SSB launched a joint operation at Kotabari village, under Tamulpur police station, and recovered the explosives hidden under a haystack in the house of cadre Rakesh Bodo, officials said.
