    No it all went to maoist i bet.There is no doubt about it that major source of explosives for maoists are these mining companies.GOI has to make stringent laws for the entities which handles explosives in india and these explosives when moved from one place to others should be tracked by GPS.

    Maoists will use these against MPVs, A standard MPV can take 14kg of HE under the hull, these stolen EXPLOSIVE will do significant damage to CRPF Armour vehicles..

    But these Maoists put 50kg approx explosives in a big drum and plant it under the road........ its impossible to a light tank like T-55 could withstand it......... what can poor MPV's do.
    i have lively seen the holes on road after explosions...

    it may be OT, but please can you elaborate. I myself suspect some nexus between them. Do these maoists engage in illegal mining

    yes
    what I meant was wouldn't the "liberated zone" (that is what they like to call it) ie the area under the control of maoists be much safer for illegal mining

    Maybe RAW stole it to use in Pakistan :D

    Anyway this is some serious issue. Hopefully the security agencies recover all the missing explosives before it reaches the wrong hands.

    already they may have reached because these trucks were being missing from april. its already 5months from now.
    if the officials woke soon, they could have recovered them. now atleast some of 300 tons could be recovered now, i hope it.
