Bangalore: Police on Saturday recovered two single
barrel guns with live cartridges from two abandoned bags at a
bus stand at Upparpet here.



Police suspect that the bags were left behind by two
persons aspiring to join a security agency as it also
contained job application forms.

The bags with the guns, 14 live cartridges and gun
licences, which had to be renewed, were found during a check
of passengers arriving here as part of the enhanced security
drill in the wake of Wednesday`s Mumbai serial blasts.


"We suspect that the guns had been left behind by their
owners in panic as they had not renewed their gun licence and
were perhaps apprehensive that they would be nabbed for
carrying guns without proper licence," police said.

As per the job application forms contained in the bag, the
duo was from Bihar.
