Sukhdev Yeshu Tumroti (31) and Shankar Parad Gawade (30) were nabbed from Pomke village yesterday, they said.

Twenty kgs of explosives, six 12-bore rifles, one country-made pistol and over a dozen cartridges, among other things, were seized from the duo, police said.

Both were produced before a local court which sent them in seven-day police remand.
