Acting on a specific intelligence input, security forces have busted a suspected naxal hideout and found a cache of bombs and explosive material from a jungle area in Gaya district.

A patrol party of the CRPF raided a naxalite camp in Lohwar yesterday after receiving specific intelligence about the presence of Maoists in the area, a CRPF officer said on Tuesday.

The personnel found nine can bombs of five kilograms each, two bags containing 50 kgs of ammonium nitrate explosive, electric wires, 28 electronic detonators and a country-made pistol from the hideout, the officer said.

The seized material has been handed over to the police and a search has been launched to nab the suspects, he said.
