Close on the heels of recovery of explosives from Faizabad, a "very powerful factory-made" bomb was recovered from the railway station in Farukabad.
The bomb was recovered by Government Railway Police personnel from platform No 3 of the station, about 400 km from Faizabad, late Wednesday night during a routine search.
The recovered bomb is not a crude one but a very powerful factory made one, Superintendent of Police L B Anthony Dev Kumar said on Thursday.
A team of bomb specialists from Kanpur has been asked to investigate the matter and the nature of explosive used in the bomb.
Elaborate security arrangements have been made in the town and extensive checking was going on at the railway station.
Police recovered about ten kilograms of explosives and 20 litres of ammonium nitrate from a waiting room of the Faizabad railway station in the wee hours of Wednesday, hours after serial blasts rocked the temple-town of Gorakhpur on Tuesday.
A state of high alert has been sounded across Uttar Pradesh in wake of serial bomb blasts in Gorakhpur and recovery of explosives in Faizabad.
