During the drive at a house owned by Pranto, the bomb disposal unit of RAB recovered four bombs in the afternoon.

Besides, they recovered two suicidal vests from a bamboo cluster near the house, he said.

Meanwhile, the elite force recovered a bomb, 20 dynamite sticks, 30 electric circuits and 185 Permanent Virtual Circuits (PVCs) from the house of Selim, RAB official added.
