Hand grenades seized in Baksa

Two hand grenades and as many detonators were recovered from the house of a former NDFB insurgent at a village in Baksa district of Assam. Acting on a tip-off, police and SSB launched a joint operation at Kotabari village, under Tamulpur police station, and recovered the explosives hidden under a haystack in the house of cadre Rakesh Bodo. During interrogation, Rakesh told the police that the Bodoland Peoples Front party's Darangajuli vice-president Sanatan Sarania had asked him to keep the explosives in his house. Both Rakesh and Sarania were arrested.
