Two mortar shells of the World War II period were disposed of through controlled detonation in Manipur’s Churachandpur district, police said on Monday.

Churachandpur’s Superintendent of Police Amrita Sinha said that the unexploded shells were disposed of on Sunday at an isolated location. Tollen villagers had found one of the 50mm shells while digging a grave and another during cleaning a nearby riverbank around three months ago. The villagers did not inform police or other authorities and instead kept the shells in a residential compound, the police officer said. After a social activist tipped off police about the two shells, police took along a bomb disposal unit and seized them.
