Fifteen bombs were on Thursday found in suitcases abandoned in a coach of the Sealdah-Varanasi Express train near Dhanauri station during intensified searches of trains in the aftermath of the Samjhauta Express blasts.

Police said passengers travelling in coach number 95411 noticed two abandoned suitcases near the toilet and immediately informed the Government Railway Police and railway officials.

After breaking open the suitcases, five powerful and 10 small crude bombs and material used for making them were found in one suitcase.

The other suitcase contained some admit cards for a test for a government job and bills of the Jharkhand State Electricity Board, officials said.

The bombs were being defused. No arrests had been made in this connection, they said.
