The CEO of Hyderabad-based Lekcon Infrastructure Pvt Ltd and nine of its workers were arrested on Friday in connection with recovery of huge cache of explosives from an area adjacent to the company’s crusher unit at Pottrel.
On a tip off, SP Akhileswar Singh along with a team of cops and BSF jawans rushed to the spot and recovered the explosives hidden in a hill.
The seizure included six timer bombs, 10 kg camphor and potasium nitrate, 12 gel liquid packets, gelatin sticks, 9,935 bundles of wires, a mobile bomb, 100 litres of acid and Maoist literature.
Police said that two explosives-laden vehicles from Hyderabad had reached the crusher site on Thursday midnight.
