AGARTALA: Just four days after the serial blasts here, one live bomb with a detonator, powerful battery and a mobile set as trigger was found near Radhamadhab temple at Radhanagar as the five-day Durga Puja festival began today.

Police said a team of National Security Guard (NSG) and members of the state’s bomb squad recovered the bomb, which was kept inside a bag, during a joint search.

The bomb was later defused, police said, adding the mobile set with a live SIM card, seized at the spot, was likely to provide clues.

Agartala was rocked by serial blasts at five places, including Radhanagar bus stand, on Wednesday night which left about 100 people injured.
