GUNTUR: Guntur police on Friday found 15 country-made explosives hidden under a car at Manchikallu village of Rentachintala mandal. They said the car belonged to local YSRC leader Y Narasimha Rao, a relative of TDP Gurajala MLA Y Srinivasa Rao.

The incident took place when the TDP MLA and other leaders of the party were scheduled to attend a village festival, Poleramma Jatara, in a few days. 

The police said the bombs were discovered during regular inspections and that the YSRC leader has since been arrested. Later, Macherla MLA P Ramakrishna Reddy, from the YSRCP, protested before the local police station and the DSP’s office demanding Narasimha Rao’s immediate release.
