Indian Army's 'Hurt Locker' Moment

The Indian Army's 201 Bomb Disposal Company under the Western Command carrying out disposal of unexploded munitions at the Inland Container Depot, (ICD) Tughlakabad near Delhi. The operation, codenamed Sahyog-II, involves handling and segregation of approximately 3,500 munitions lying at depot and transporting them to a range. Over 2500 munitions have been safely disposed. The operation is likely to be completed by end June. The squad has been using a remotely operated vehicle (British-built) and bomb suits to recover the munitions. According to a statement from the Army, "The handling is tricky as the origin of munitions is not known and due to its old vintage the chances of accidental detonation is very high."
