An individual has been taken into custody with a stock of powerful explosives, in Lower Andarawewa, Hambantota.

This was when the explosives were being transported in a cab.

A raid had been carried out by officials of the Sooriyawewa Police Special Task Force on a tip-off received and since the particular cab did not heed orders to stop, it was pursued and the explosives were discovered when the vehicle was finally halted and inspected.

Our correspondent said that 225 kilograms of Ammonium Nitrate, 196 Gelignite sticks and 100 Detonators were found in the cab.

The suspect has been handed over to the Hambantota Police for further investigations.
