Shirdi: An unattended bag lying at the main entrance of Sai Bhakta Niwas, a residential facility for devotees on the temple premises at Shirdi, was found to contain ganja.

Panic gripped people in the premises this afternoon when an employee of the Shirdi Saibaba Trust spotted the suitcase, following which the Bomb Detection Squad was summoned, police said.

The bag had 10 kgs ganja, valued at Rs one lakh, they said.

Shirdi shrine is teeming with devotees following the Ram Navmi celebrations on April 18 and extended weekend.

Local police are investigating the matter further.
