Gumla (Jharkhand): Around 40 detonators and four kg of explosive powder were seized from a house at Sogra village in Gumla district, the police said on Thursday.

Getting a tip-off, the police last night raided the house of a former activist of the People?s Liberation Front of India, Matu Singh, and seized the detonators, 1.5 kg gun powder, 2.5 kg ammonium nitrate and two country-made pistols allegedly from his house, Gumla Superintendent of Police Jatin Narwal told reporters here.

Singh, who after breaking away from the PLFI allegedly indulged in extortion and faces at least seven cases, was absconding, he said.

His father and younger brother were detained after the recovery of explosives from their house, the police officer said.
