Alert constables uncover explosives in a bag belonging to an elderly man on the platform

Explosives were seized from Nagpur Railway Station around 1 pm on Saturday. Three RPF constables were on platform number 4, when they spotted a suspicious-looking man in his early sixties on the footover bridge holding a white plastic bag.

When questioned, he offered evasive replies leading to an alert among the police. They checked the bag and found 80 gelatin rods and 73 wired detonators. The man was identified as Pannalal Ramtek from Aamgaon village in Gondia district, a naxal affected area. Preliminary enquiries reveal that Ramtek was waiting for a person to whom the consignment was to be delivered. He named the source.

Meanwhile, the accused has been handed over to the GRP (Nagpur). The ATS and Anti-Naxal cells have also been informed.
