Malegaon: The police in Kannad – a small town 55 kilometers to Aurangabad seized live bombs and arms from an ex-army man in a raid Sunday.


According to the report published in the Mumbai based Urdu daily Inquilab, when the police raided the house of the former army man, Ghulab Rao Sonawane after it received the complaints that he was roaming in Kannad with swords in his hands, they were surprised to find two live bombs, swords and other objectionable materials.


Consequently, Inquilab reports, the Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) from Aurangabad headed by its chief Kishore Kamble rushed to the town and questioned the accused.


“We had received the information that a man with sword in his hands was roaming in Shiv Nagar area of Kannad. The accused was caught after he failed to run away. He was later identified as Ghulab Rao Sonawane.”, the Urdu daily quoted Kannad Police Inspector Abhiman Pawar.


Later, when they raided his house, the police team found two live bombs, swords and other objectionable materials from his possession.


As the incident was reported to Aurangabad 55 kilometers to Kannad, the ATS team headed by Kishore Kamble rushed to the town and questioned the accused.


According to the report, Kishore Kamble said, “Ghulab Rao is a former army man. The box in which the bombs were found were also having some papers written in the Urdu language. Besides two live bombs, we have also seized swords, aluminum wires in large quantity and iron rods from the spot.”


He also said that the accused had a dubious record. In 1998 he was charged of burglary and the stolen materials were also recovered from him.


“The police have taken the possession of his Mobile SIM card and the investigation is on to check why the accused had stored these materials in his house”, Inquilab quoted Aurangabad ATS Chief Kishore Kamble.


Aurangabad attracted the media glare in 2006 first when members of Right Wing Hindu party were killed in a bomb blast at Nanded. The deceased were reportedly planning bomb blast outside a mosque in Aurangabad. Investigationg officers had also seized fake beard and outfit used by Muslims from the blast site.


The popular Marathwada city in Maharashtra again hit the headlines, when in arms haul case police seized arms and explosives from the alleged members of SIMI.
