Patna: Bomb experts in Patna on Tuesday diffused a crude bomb after it was recovered from the guard room of an apartment complex in Machhutoli under Pirbahore police station.

Though it remains a mystery who found the bomb and what role the guard played in planting it, the bomb squad was called in after the residents of Shambhunath Plaza Apartments rushed out of their residence to take cover when the news of the discovery of the bomb spread in the area.

Chandan Kushwaha, Superintendent of Police (SP), said it was a crude low-intensity bomb that was carefully taken to the Patna College4 playground where a member of the bomb squad successfully diffused it using the water technique.

Interestingly, this is the same apartment complex where the family members of the recent murder victim and drug shop owner Anil Agrawal lives.
