AP: Man held for carrying explosives

Anantapur, Dec. 26. (PTI): One person, hailing from Kerala, has been arrested here for carrying explosive material in 'Prasanthi Nilayam' of Satya Sai Baba at Puttaparthi.

The man, identified as Rajappa (48), was yesterday found carrying two detonators and a fuse wire, Puttaparthi DSP Venkat Reddy, told reporters here today.

Reddy said the man was found roaming suspiciously in the Nilayam by Seva Dal volunteers of the Nilayam, who caught and handed him over to the police.

The DSP said they contacted Prof Mukud, Seva Dal chief of Kerala, asking him to ascertain the antecedents of the arrested person. Prof Mukud after inquiry informed Puttaparthy police that Rajappa was an "unsound man".

Later, police produced Rajappa before the Magistrate at Penukonda, who directed police to send Rajappa to the mental hospital at Yerragadda in Hyderabad for examination.

Meanwhile, security in and outside the Nilayam has been strengthened, the DSP said.
