Mumbai: Sixteen live cartridges were today found in a lane near the Taj Mahal Hotel in south Mumbai.

However, the pedestrians claimed a woman spotted the shells and alerted the police. Colaba Police has seized the bullets and further investigations are on.

"It appears that somebody, who possesses a licensed revolver, must have misplaced the bullets or a thief must have hidden them," said another police official, probing the case.
