Khunti: Security forces recovered a 20-kg
can bomb while a suspected Maoist was arrested in separate
incidents in Khunti district of Jharkhand on Saturday.
A police team unearthed the bomb, planted on the route
between Mosanga and Masdih villages, apparently targetting the
security forces, Superintendent of Police Manoj Kaushik told
newsmen here.

The explosive was defused later.
In another incident, a Maoist, identified as Vipin,
was arrested during raids at Matagara village.

Vipin hailed from West Singhbum and was involved in at
