CHENNAI: A neatly bundled pack of `gelatin-like material,' found abandoned on the Madras High Court campus, created a flutter among advocates and litigants on Friday.

Higher officials who rushed to the court premises in the afternoon, however, said it was a "pack of crackers" burst by the advocates who had celebrated the election of advocate R.C. Paul Kanagaraj as the president of the Madras High Court Advocates Association (MHAA) on Wednesday night. The bundle, recovered from under two parked cars near the Sessions Court block, was immediately removed to the Esplanade Police Station.

However, concerned advocates kept inquiring with the media persons and police personnel about the recovery of the explosive material f in the court.

The High Court Registry, which remained unaware of the recovery till it was approached for details, called police personnel and inquired about the material.
