Bombs found at NE Express

Two country-made bombs have been recovered in the New Delhi-bound North East Express from Guwahati on Friday morning. This has forced delay in the train to halt at a railway station in Bihar.

According to information, a passenger spotted the bombs at 6.30 in the morning and informed it to the driver of the train. These bombs were wrapped in a newspaper lying under the seat.

The bombs were then put into a water-filled bucket for defusing at the platform.

The train was allowed to resume its journey after being stopped for about two hours.
