Kolkata: Two people have been arrested and a huge cache of crude bombs and some firearms seized in West Bengal`s Burdwan district, police said on Sunday.

During a combing operation on Saturday night, police made the seizures from a hideout in Belsore village.

"We have seized around 200 crude bombs and a few country-made guns. Two people have been arrested," a police officer said.

The police are examining if the incident has any links to the October 2 blast in Khagragarh in the same district in which militant outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahedeen Bangladesh was involved.
