An empty box of AK 47 cartridges, 84 cartons of firecrackers and chemicals from the illegal factory, besides hundreds of pairs of shoes, designer clothing and caps, were also found.
Satish Mehra, state Information and Public Relations Department deputy director said the other fibre glass tunnel opened some 5 km away from the Dera head's cave. "The fibre tunnel as well as the illegal firecracker factory have been sealed," he said.
