On Friday, Aug 13, 61 trucks with explosives worth of 1.30 crore were gone missing. The trucks were sent from a Rajasthan based factory to Sagar district in Madhya Pradesh.
Police officials told that four trucks were found abandoned in Rajgarh, about 300 km from Sagar town where the 300-tonne consignment of explosives was to be delivered.
"The company that ordered for explosives had surrendered its licence before the order for explosives was booked. I suspect the explosives were diverted in transit," said Anvesh Mangalam, Sagar Range Inspector General of Police.
"I am collecting all information, compiling all documents, interrogating a few people in a bid to solve the case," he added.
