Huge cache of explosives seized in Bihar’s Munger

Munger: A huge cache of explosives, including 2,500 kg ammonium nitrate, 5000 dynamites, 300 detonators, besides 10 bundles of fuse wires, was seized by police from Bakarpur in Bihar's Munger town Saturday, police said.

On a tip-off, a police team led by Superintendent of Police M Sunil Naik Naik raided a house at Bakarpur this morning and seized the explosives.

One person, identified as Mohammed Sattar, was arrested during the raids, the SP said.

It is suspected that the explosive was meant for supply to Maoists as Munger is one among the Naxal-hit districts in Bihar.
