Two .303 rifles, along with over 20 bullets, were found in a litter bin close to the back gate of Gandhi hospital in Padmaraonagar, Secunderabad on Friday morning.

Municipal workers cleaning the road found a bed sheet wrapped around some huge object. When unwrapped, they found the rifles and bullets inside it. Chilakalguda police was immediately informed.

“We found the firearms apparently belonging to the police department and are probing who dumped them there,” Gopalapuram ACP P.V. Muralidhar said.
