The rusty remains are believed to be from the Liberation War period

Police have recovered a mortar shell found by locals at Hatibandha upazila in Lalmonirhat.

Locals discovered the shell near a bamboo bush while excavating a pond, in Barakhata union under Hatibandha, on Monday.

Upon receiving information, a team from Hatibandha police station visited the spot and collected the shell.

The police have stored it in the station’s evidence room for safekeeping, Hatibandha police station OC Omar Faruk told the Dhaka Tribune. 

He further confirmed that this is the second mortar shell discovered the upazila in less than a year. 

“Another mortar shell was discovered – again while excavating a pond – here on April 13 last year,” he added.

“Judging by the rust and other signs of decomposition, we believe the shell is from the Liberation War period,” the OC said. 

Earlier on February 17, police in Khulna’s Paikgachha upazila recovered 32 grenades from a shrimp enclosure.

Paikgachha police station OC Md Emdadul Haque Sheikh said the grenades, covered in rust, were found inside a wooden box, buried one foot underground.
