IED found in Biruberi, close shave for children

Press Trust of India  |  Guwahati 

A 2-kg improvised explosive device (IED) was recovered in Guwahati's Birubari area today when children were playing with the explosive, a senior police officer said.

The children of one M Bhowmick were playing in front of their house at Sankarpur Hill area this morning when they found the object wrapped in jute ropes, the officer said.



Bhomick told reporters at the site that he first thought it was a football made by children but upon finding it heavy he threw it inside the nearby forests, as his neighbours informed the police.

Bomb disposal squad personnel found within the handmade IED, a bottle filled with gelatin-like substance, glass shards and nails fitted with a detonator and safety key, the officer said.

The squad safely detonated the bomb in the afternoon hours.

Police were investigating who was behind the act.
