New Delhi, Feb 12 - The Indo-Tibetan Border Police - has recovered 60 kg of explosives from Rajanandgaon district of Chhattisgarh, an official said here Sunday.

The explosives were found Saturday afternoon when an ITBP patrolling party deployed in the region to counter Maoists noticed a patch of asphalt in the middle of the Kohka-Manpur road varying in colour.

There were two IEDs - hidden three feet below the road -- one weighing 20 kg stacked above another weighing 40 kg, ITBP's public relations officer, Deepak Pandey told IANS.

As it is a busy road, the explosives were enough to kill several people, he added.

According to Pandey, it is for the first time that explosives have been found in the middle of a busy road and the Maoists may be starting a new dangerous trend.

Meanwhile, the explosives have been handed over to the local police.
