A security guard found an improvised pistol and seven cartridges near one of the gates of Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
The items were found inside a bag.
The bag was found at 2 am today, about 50 meters from the North Block gate.
The area around the North Gate is primarily residential.
The university has been seeing a lot of protests and action in recent months.
While right-wing groups claim that JNU students are running riot inside the campus, left-wing groups allege that right-wing groups are trying to portray the campus in a bad light.
TV channel India today said there has been an ‘arms haul’ in the campus.
