Madurai: A flutter was created after two time-bombs packed in a parcel were received by a former activist of the banned Al-Umma terror outfit here, police said today.
Umar had received the parcel from a boy who told him that he was coming from a courier office, police said.
On opening the parcel, he found the bombs attached to a battery and informed police.
The bombs were “sophisticated”, police said, adding, bomb squad personnel defused them. A top police official said Umar had many enemies in other terror outfits. He is being questioned to trace the boy’s identity, police sources said.
