Bokaro, May 31 : In a major success for security forces a Can bomb weighing 15 kilograms kept hidden underneath a culvert on the Kurpania-Bokaro Thermal main road in this district was recovered.
A joint team of the district police and CRPF on Monday found the IED which was later defused by a bomb disposal squad.
Police said that the ultras had planted the bomb underneath the culvert to inflict damage on the security forces.
Before defusing the bomb the traffic movement was stopped on the road. 15 years ago the same culvert was destroyed by the maoists through a blast. However no organisation has so far claimed responsibility for placing up the bomb.
