MI officers in soup for planting sand for RDX

The nefarious nexus emerged when police recovered a consignment of apple boxes near MLAs’ Hostel in Jammu in which a cavity had been created to store a black material which was being passed off as explosives. The boxes had detonators attached to it, triggering panic on October 8.

However, after forensic analysis, the supposed explosive material turned out to be sand which was attached to wires and detonators that were brought from stone quarries to give it a realistic look of an IED.

The accused—Mehboob Dar, Ram Krishen and Mohammed Rafi— were picked up after a stone quarry dealer told the police that he had been supplying detonators to Dar earlier also.
