Besides, two mobile tower batteries were also recovered from the bags after search by Punjab Police officials.
The recovery comes a day after Pathankot and Gurdaspur were placed under high alert following suspicious activity. The police are yet to ascertain who could have dropped off the bag near the Army cantonment.
Further investigations by the Punjab Police are on.
Both Pathankot and Gurdaspur which have been attacked by terrorists recently were placed on high alert after three 'suspicious' persons went missing after abandoning a robbed SUV.
A massive search operation was launched by the police of both the districts to hunt them down. Though nobody has been arrested yet, the police claimed the suspects belonged to Jammu and Kashmir.
The SUV was robbed by the suspects from Sambha in Jammu yesterday, police said.
