Acting on a tip off, personnel of the police and the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) raided Daulatpur village under Vishnuganj police station limits Thursday night and dug out the explosive materials from beneath the ground.

The materials included two gelatin sticks, 1 kg of sulphur, two detonators, 21 empty cartridges, electric wire, two steel cans, 600 grams of broken glass and 1 kg of small rocks, Jehanabad Superintendent of Police Manish Kumar said.

The explosive materials were detected during search with metal detectors by the bomb disposal squad of the SSB, he said.

No one has been arrested so far in this connection.

Police sources said the materials could belong to Naxalites.
