Vadodara: Three persons have been detained
following recovery of six crude bombs from Vadodara Friday,
"The bombs which weighed 1.1 kg each were recovered from
a bag near a religious place in the Yakutpura area," city
police commissioner Rakesh Asthana said.
"We raided the place following information from
Intelligence and found a bag," he said.
"As per initial probe, if exploded the crude bombs could
have caused damage within 5-10 meters area," Asthana said.
The recovery of the crude bombs assumes significance as
the city was on alert following the verdict to be pronounced
on the Ayodhya land issue today, but was deferred after
following Supreme Court order.
According to DCP Ashok Yadav, the bombs contained gun
powder, ammonium nitrate, splinters, glass pieces and other
material, which have been sent for forensic examination.
One of the detained is from the city while two others are
from Surat. They are being interrogated, he said.
They have been detained as they were present near the
place from where the bombs were recovered, he said, adding
more persons could also be involved in case.
