“The tenant verification form was not filled in by the land lady due to which it is becoming difficult to know about the details of the deceased person,” Mishra said.
The land lady told police that the deceased had assured her to give his details within a month and had claimed that he was working for a mining firm.
Gelatin powder was used in making the bombs, sources said.
Mishra has ruled out any terror angle.
Meanwhile, the bombs found in the hut were being disposed of by a squad.
