In a massive haul of explosives, 40 boxes containing over 8000 gelatin sticks were seized near a quarry in Watanamkurushi 10th Ward of Shoranur area in Palakkad district of Kerala. There were around 200 gelatin sticks contained in a single carton.

Around noon on Wednesday, the residents made their initial discovery of the boxes containing the gelatin sticks. The police were subsequently notified by the locals, and the authorities confiscated the boxes. The investigation was started by the police questioning quarry operators. Additionally, the local CCTV video is being examined.
