Pakistani mortar shell found in Tripura pond
Agartala: A mortar shell, possibly used by the Pakistani army during the 1971 war with India, was recovered from a pond at Kamalasagar, a border village in Sipahijala district, the police said on Thursday.
During reclamation of an old pond, MGNREGS workers yesterday recovered the sealed mortar shell which bore the identification number LOT 7050666 PAK 71.
Police suspected that the shell did not explode as it fell into the pond. It was brought here for deactivation.
Tripura, surrounded by Bangladesh in three sides and sharing a 856-km border with it, was the war headquarters of the liberation soldiers.
