Burdwan (WB): Two underground bunkers,
with over 200 bombs and a musket in them, were found from a
village under restive Mangalkot police station on Monday.

Superintendent of Police Humayun Kabir said the
bunkers were found during a search operation in the village
following a tip off.

A bunker is a shelter, built partly or fully
underground to protect its inmates from falling bombs or other
kind of attacks.

Kabir said 225 bombs, a musket and six rounds of
ammunition were recovered from the bunkers which were quite
freshly built and each could accommodate six to seven persons.

The arms were probably supplied from Munger in Bihar
and neighbouring Murshidabad district of West Bengal, he said.

Search operations for such bunkers would be made in
the entire district, he said.

Clashes between CPI(M) and Trinamool Congress occurred
frequently in Mangalkot since the Lok Sabha election in 2009.
