Nearly 60 used 'high-explosive' shells were found near Anjar town in Kutch district of Gujarat on Monday,
"The shells were found packed in gunny bags in a wasteland off Anjar-Adipur road. Five to six of the shells had explosives in them," Kutch superintendent of police Piyush Patel said. While the bomb squad has started disposing of the shells, army expertise has also been sought, Patel said.
"There is no fear of explosions," he said.
"We suspect that somebody who lifted the cargo must have found the material in it and disposed it in the wasteland fearing prosecution," the DSP said. Patel said a farmer noticed these bags lying near a temple and informed the police about it.
