Deadly, high-explosive bomb planted by Naxals found in Chhattisgarh, disposed of in controlled blast

Chhattisgarh: CoBRA commandos got rid of a mortar high-explosive bomb found around 450 m from the Elmagunda camp in an area affected by Naxal terror.

A deadly bomb, planted by Naxal terrorists in Chhattisgarh, was disposed of on May 16. The mortar high-explosive bomb was found around 450 m from the Elmagunda camp in an area affected by left-wing extremism.

CRPF's CoBRA commandos got rid of the bomb via a controlled explosion. The blast was conducted in a forested area in Sukma. CoBRA, or Commando Battalion for Resolution Action's 206 Battalion's D Company neutralised the high-explosive bomb.
