KANJIRAPPALLY: The police recovered scores of lethal swords and daggers from Kanjirappally. The seizure was made and a youth who had taken delivery of two innocuous looking gunny bags containing the arms from a parcel service branch was taken into custody. The cache includes 158 heavy swords, daggers and knives. The consignment, destined for Erumeli area, was dispatched from Puduppariyaram in Palakkad through Alleppy Parcel Service (APS). Rahim, 35, who had taken delivery of the consignment, apparently with a fake consignee address, has been taken into custody. He is being grilled by cops and has been formally arrested so far. The youth has reportedly stated that he hails from Charummood, near Kayamkulam in Alappuzha and maintains that he is engaged in seasonal business at Erumeli, during Sabarimala pilgrimage season. He is also a Congress sympathizer.
