Morena (Madhya Pradesh): The city police claimed to have unearthed a huge cache of arms from a house in Jotai village, official sources on Monday.

Besides arms, the police dug out different equipment and raw material to make weapons. Two persons involved in making arms were also arrested, the police said.
