The Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) were detected during an operation by Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA) – an elite unit of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) — and 153 Battalion of the CRPF.

“An operation was launched by 205 CoBRA Battalion and 153 Battalion at about 5 am following reliable input provided by CRPF’s intelligence wing about planting of IEDs in Lahangsthan area near Sahiyari village in Madanpur district,” CRPF DIG M. Dinakaran told IANS.
