Nagpur: A lot of facts are coming to the fore regarding 59 low-intensity explosive content detonators and fused wires found behind traffic kiosks at Nagpur railway station on Monday. Sources said that the bag was left unattended for a long time before it came to notice as a part of it was completely damaged due to the rat bite.
In this way, it has also been learned that the detonators were also part of a consignment, Which was sent by the manufacturer to Pulgaon (in Wardha district) in Bazargaon near Kondhali (in Nagpur district). Which till now the police did not know at all. Police officers are trying to find out whether it was stolen at the delivery point, on the way, or from the destination.
An official has also said that the City Police and the Government Railway Police (GRP) are trying their best to investigate how the detonator landed at the railway station. Manufactured in the year 2017, even as per the label on the packet, the detonator should not have been sold in the open market at all. The city police have also handed over the detonators to the government railway police with utmost care.
Plastic and cloth mug found in the bag
Sources have also said that if the fire had started, then the detonator and connected wires would have been activated, but the effect of the low-intensity explosion would not have been more than about five meters at all. The Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad has taken the bag along with the detonator and fused wire to the city police headquarters for examination.
It has also been learned that plastic and a cloth mug have also been found in the bag which was carrying the detonators.
City Police Chief Amitesh Kumar has said that the investigation is being done from different angles. The intensity of the explosion of the detonator would have been exactly the same as that of firecrackers.
