The city police seized five bomb shells abandoned in a park in the local cantonment area late Saturday evening. Though these shells were not live, police and the army searched the area to find if there were more. Police commisioner Amar Singh Chahal rushed to the place.
“These are iron shells. Army experts are probing the exact nature,” said additional deputy commissioner of police Lakhbir Singh. “We cannot say right now what exactly these are. Four shells are with army and we have kept one,” he said. It is learnt that the shells were spotted by a local who called the cops.
