Koderma (Jharkhand), July 12 (ANI): Police in Jharkhand's Koderma District have confirmed the seizure of a huge consignment of explosives and suspect that it was reportedly being ferried by Maoists or Naxalites for use in another part of the state.

Briefing media about the explosives seizure, the station house officer of the Domchanch police station area, Suman Kumar Sinha, said 20 bags of ammonium nitrate were retrieved from a pick-up van on the basis of information received earlier about the vehicle's location.
