Rajasthan News: The Udaipur-Asarwa railway track was blown up with explosives in Rajasthan's Udaipur district on Sunday. The blast took place on the railway track just hours before the recently launched Asarwa-Udaipur Express train from Ahmedabad was to pass through the Jawar Mines police station area. Intelligence of Rajasthan has termed this blast on the railway track as a terrorist attack. On the other hand, there has been a stir after the recovery of about two quintal gelatine sticks from the river just 70 km away from the blast site in Udaipur.Gelatin sticks found in 7 sacksPolice investigating the blast on the Udaipur track have found 186 kg gelatin sticks in 7 sacks from the river. These sticks of gelatin have been found in tribal dominated areas. After receiving such a large quantity of gelatin sticks, the fear of a big conspiracy has deepened in the blast on Odha railway bridge in Udaipur.
