"A few grenades and ammunition were recovered from the same area earlier this month as well."
Chandigarh, June 15 - Some AK-47 rifle ammunition and 14 hand grenades were recovered during digging work under the employment guarantee scheme in a village pond Sunday near Punjab's Jagraon town, police said.

The recovered hand grenades and ammunition were in a rusted condition, police said.

The police have cordoned off the area and taken the grenades and ammunition into its possession, Jagraon Deputy Superintendent of Police Naveen Kumar said.

The pond in village Sidhwan Khurd was being dug up by labourers under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS).

A few grenades and ammunition were recovered from the same area earlier this month as well.

Police officials believe that the grenades and ammunition could have been dumped in the pond by terrorists during years of terrorism (1981-1992) in Punjab.
