Madhya Pradesh police seized more than 45 detonators and 30 gelatin rods from the godown of Shri Vireshwar Hunuman Mandir in Kandilpura area on Friday.
Police said the accused might have stocked the explosives for stone quarries.
According to a Times of India report, the raids were conducted after crime branch had received the information from a local about explosives being stocked illegally in the store room of the temple.
Police had questioned the owner of the godown, Devki nandan, in connection with the case.
Devki Nandan, a temple priest, responded to the police that he had no idea who stocked the explosives in the godown.
“It has come to fore that the room is accessible to several persons of the temple and they have a key to it. Anyone could have stocked the explosives in the room. We are questioning the locals in the area and others to know more about the case,” ASP Rupesh Dwivedi was quoted by TOI as saying.
Police ruled out terror link in the case.
