Seventeen crude bombs were found on Monday near the Kalupur Darvaza of the city, police said. The bombs found were not sophisticated devices but crude explosives, police said. Further investigations are on, police said. The bombs were found a day before the nine-day Navratri celebrations begins, police said. Officials said the bombs were found in small tobacco tins in Kalupur area of the city. They added the bombs were of low-intensity and were defused soon after. The recovery of the bombs has caused some anxiety among the police force as it comes just before the festive season. Barely two days ago, a low intensity bomb rocked Mehrauli in Delhi, killing two persons and leaving several injured. The same comes two weeks after the coordinated bombings in the capital on September 13 that killed 24 people and injured over a 100. On July 26, serial bombings in Ahmedabad killed 56 people. In the days following the bombings, 23 low-intensity bombs were recovered from Surat and defused.
