Altogether 76 bombs were on Sunday found near a brick kiln in Nandigram, CRPF officials said.

Acting on a tip-off, CRPF personnel went to the Janani brick kiln area in Nandigram with sniffer dogs and found the bombs hidden in the bushes.

"The bombs would be handed over to the police," CRPF Assistant Commandant Arindam Upadhyay said.

Earlier on March 17, CBI arrested 10 people hiding in Janani brick kiln on charges of rioting. Leaders of the anti-acquisition Bhumi Uched Pratirodh Committee complained to the police that the brick kilns were used to stockpile arms and bombs.

Khejuri is a CPI(M) stronghold from where they allegedly hurled bombs at BUPC activists in Satengabari and Sherkhanchawk villages across Talpati canal.
