IED found in Delhi’s Ghazipur market, controlled explosion

– World Affairs SRS

Just a fortnight before Republic Day, an improvised explosive device (IED) was found hidden in an unclaimed bag in the eastern part of the national capital on Friday morning, triggering panic among people.

“An IED was recovered from a suspicious bag and a controlled detonation was carried out,” a senior official told IANS.

A fire brigade official told IANS that a fire brigade was rushed to the spot after receiving information about an unclaimed bag lying in the city’s Ghazipur flower market at around 10.20 am.

Teams from the National Security Guard’s Bomb Disposal Squad and the Anti-Terrorist Unit Special Cell of Delhi Police also reached the spot to take stock of the situation, officials said.

After this, the police cordoned off the entire area for the safety of the people.

Later, the Bomb Disposal Squad of the National Security Guard carried out controlled detonation of the recovered IED.

Heavy police force can be seen in and around the area.

Meanwhile, the Special Cell has registered a case under the relevant provisions of the Explosives Act.

Sources said that the police were already on alert in the national capital regarding Republic Day on January 26.

“Such events can be used by anti-national elements with nefarious designs to carry out terror attacks in the city,” a top official had recently told IANS.
