Refuting any political or extremist hand behind the bombs the four made, Kolhapur district superintendent of police Manojkumar Sharma said that the youths were “trying to make easy money”. The police confiscated four live bombs and equipment worth Rs 25,69,575. The bombs confiscated were ones that could be detonated with a remote control, Sharma said.

The police are also investigating whether the bomb-making attempt had any connections with BJP candidate Narendra Modi’s proposed rally in Sangli on April 9.

“On primary investigation, nothing suspicious has been found about the youths and their connections. The police got the tip of about the bomb-making some days back. Undercover policemen made an offer of Rs 8 lakh to the bomb-makers, who agreed to sell the bombs,” Sharma said.

A police team led by inspector Chandrakant Shinde of Kagal police station was first tipped off with information on the quartet making bombs and trying to sell them. Local informants told the police that two youths were keen to sell an explosive and that they had already bought material required for making a bomb. “After confirming the tip, we decided to lay a trap for the gang. The bomb makers were called for a meeting on the Kolhapur-Banglore national highway-4, just outside Kagal town. We detained all four involved and confiscated material,” Shinde said.

The confiscated material include gelatin sticks, remotely handled switches, remote control devices, five screw drivers, steel clips, wire-cutters, hacksaws, scissors, hammers, buzzers, door bells, six battery cells, power control equipment, energy circuit wiring, switch cord and paper pieces with diagram notes, among others. The police did not reveal who sourced the gelatin sticks and from where.

The bombs were diffused at an open space in Shahunagar area of Kagal tehsil.

  1. Read same story in the Hindu 6 April Section Election 2014.

    But I don’t like the heading. Avoid sensationalism. No difference between Mainstream media and this site when it comes to bad practices.

  2. In this case since hindus are involve so police will say it was for commercial use. The conspiracy theory comes if person are from minority community.

      This is the source of terrorism in India.

    • Hindu should have a terror wing to fight with enemy of hindu-india as muslims did in allover the world.if we have a terror wing so no one can dare to divide india.we have to create a wing to fight with islamic terrorist in kashmir.muslims terrorists killed more than 10000hindu in kashmir.if we have a wing like this so no one can dare to kill a single hindu. It is the need of hours.and we that if muslims continued to terror in hindu-india so this type of wing must be created soon. Some lower rrs men trying to create a wing to fight with islamic terror recently.cause hindus haven’t a tradition of terrorism as muslims and other religion.muslims have a long history of terrorism but hindus dont have this at all. If we want to lead in the world so we have to destroy our enemy first with the root.

      • sounds ironic coming from you…. you hindus had a culture of upper and lower class.. it is in your religion, if it wasn’t for the muslim influence, india still would have been a racist country.. where brahmins would have had all the rights and the lower class people like yourself would have been washing clothes, shining shoes of the brahmins. The reign of akbar is still known as the golden age of india… you have no idea to what extent your religion has been influenced by islam… there was a time when hindu womens suffered like no one else in india, sati practices, child marriage and so on and so forth…. so dont put false accusation on other religion, without any knowledge of it…
