Kohima: The shell of an unexploded bomb of the World War II has been used as a church bell for the past many decades at Sohomi village in Phek District of Nagaland, official sources said here on Thursday.
The unexploded bomb, dropped during the World War-II, was found by the villagers. After defusing and emptying the bomb, the shell has been used as a church bell for many long years.
The villager erected a wooden post as its stand and used a stone to ring the bell. The villagers refused to replace it when many offered a new bell, the sources said.
