Two pesrons Krishna Sharma and Prabhu Tiwari were arrested in the connection.
"There are approximately 12000 sticks, however, we haven't counted them as of now. Once they are counted then only the right numbers can be detected," said Nagendra Nath Tiwari, Sup-Inspector, Aamas Police Station, Gaya.
The seized material is under test by the experts. The police officials believe that explosives could have been used by the rebels as the area is dominated by the Maoists.
"At the first glance it seems that they must have been indulged in detonators business. These detonators are generally used in destroying rocky terrains and in making landmines," Tiwari added.
