Man Found With 1 KG of Uranium in India
Indian authorities yesterday arrested a man discovered in possession of close to 1 kilogram of uranium worth approximately $7 million, the Times of India reported (see GSN, June 3).
Based on a tip, police searched Ishtaq Ahmed's home in Purulia, where they found the uranium contained in a sealed box carrying the inscription "URM, Made in USA."
Ahmed is reported to have ties to criminal organizations in India and Afghanistan.
The uranium container had not been opened yet as the nuclear material within might pose a health risk. The sealed box was being transferred to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory for analysis (Times of India, Oct. 4).
