In a bizarre incident, a boy in Maharashtra allegedly made a bomb by watching YouTube videos but got scared thinking that it might explode. Reports inform that the boy performed this stunt to make his presence felt in society and to garner attention from people. According to a report by TOI, the boy, identified as 25-year-old Rahul Pagare, made a bomb by watching several videos on YouTube. After making the bomb he was afraid of the consequences and took it to the police station.
Fearing that the bomb may explode Walks to Police Station to Get It Defused
The incident was reported from Nagpur in Maharashtra on last Saturday. Following the incident, the boy surrendered before the cops. According to the cops, the ‘bomb’ he assembled from scrap bits and pieces had no chance of going off. The boy, who is now in the custody of Nandanvan police in Nagpur, had learned to make a bomb by watching the YouTube videos. Fearing that the bomb may explode, he went into the Nandanvan police station with the bomb in a bag, triggering fear and chaos.
Pagare was remanded to police custody for two days by the Court
The cops then alerted Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad, which dismantled the device brought in by Pagare. A senior Police officer said that the bomb would not not have exploded or caused any damage as the boy had filled a plastic box with some gunpowder used for making crackers. The cops said that Rahul Pagare had been staying alone at rented places after losing his parents. Pagare, who worked at a salon, had to shift frequently since he was not able to pay the rent. Pagare was remanded to police custody for two days by the Court.
