Alleged explosives with a message saying, 'Hum kya kar sakte hain wo BJP ko dikhana hai' (We have to show BJP what we can do) have been found from express train in the heart of Mumbai city at Kurla Terminus. This comes a day after ISIS messages were found written on a bridge in Uran, Navi Mumbai.

Explosives were found from Shalimar express coming from West Bengal, Kolkata. Huge panic was created after the explosives were found and the whole station was vacated. The initial investigation says that it looks like geletin sticks, however the cops said that inside it has fire cracker powder.

Shockingly, wires and battery were also found attached with the explosives. The Forensic Scientific Lab (FSL) team has initiated their investigation to find out what the explosive is. Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) is also investigating the matter.

The incident has created panic like situation in Mumbai. The city which is always on alert is now taking extra precautions. Checking at various places has been increased.

A police officer said, "We are taking it seriously. Even if this is just to scare, it is a very dangerous act. The explosives have been connected with wire. They did not have any detonator but if the explosives come in contact with fire they can actually blast."

Shalimar express reached Kurla Terminus at 7.30 in the morning. After the train was vacated cleaners went inside the train to start the cleaning work. One of the cleaners found a box beneath the seat and informed the cops.

The cops are going through all the CCTV cameras and trying to find out people who deboarded the train from that particular boogie. The cops are only relying on CCTV cameras.
