Fortune Bhutia, a resident of Mirik, was produced in the additional chief judicial magistrate’s court here yesterday and remanded in police custody for 14 days.
“After arresting three Nepal residents, Dawa Tshering Bhutia, his wife Puja Limbu and Krishna Prashad Adhikary, and recovering a large amount of explosives from them on November 5 and 8, we took them in police custody. During interrogation, we came to know Fortune’s name,” Indra Chakraborty, the deputy police commissioner of SMP, said.
Around 1,500 detonators, 600-odd gelatin sticks and about 600m of codex wire had been seized earlier this month.
