RAICHUR: The Naxal activity prevention squad found explosives in five pipe like structures, hidden in front of a community hall, in a hilly region in Kortakunda village, on Wednesday.

The squad has seized two 8x3 inch pipes and three 5x 2 inch pipes containing explosive material.

Kortakunda village and surrounding areas are located near the Naxal-prone areas of Andhra Pradesh. Frequent raids and encounters by police had checked Naxal activities in recent days. The presence of explosives on Wednesday has made the police alert.
