Import containers found with live bombs, war scrap at ICD Jaipur, Delhi and Mumbai port.

469 containers of hazardous waste found at inland container depots of the customs and container freight stations in Rajasthan, Delhi & Mumbai.

Many of these live bombs were imported illegally as “shredded scrap” from Bandar Abbas port in Iran and other ports, remains from US war on Iraq and Syria and earlier from Afghanistan. Some of these imported containers have been seized by the Customs and waiting for destruction yet many others found their way to foundries in Ghaziabad and Moradabad, close to Delhi, for extracting brass and other metals.
