Balaghat (MP): Police have recovered
over one quintal of highly inflammable explosives and five kg
of gun-powder from Muchurda Valley forest in the
naxal-infested Balaghat district, 80 km away
from here.
The explosives, which were hidden in a pit, were
recovered during a search operation in the Muchurda Valley
forest, Balaghat`s Superintendent of Police (SP) Sachin
Atulkar said today.

"The spot from where this explosive material was
recovered is very sensitive as it is located close to
Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh borders. This amount of
explosives was enough to trigger a very powerful blast in the
area," he said.
So far, none was arrested in this regard and search
is on to arrest those responsible for it, the SP added.
