Cobalt 60 and a dirty bomb ?

There were multiple events of radio-activity discovered in scrap metal industry area of New Delhi. One poor worker has died from exposure.

Question is: if they found so many Cobalt 60 pieces, what are chances that one such could be attached to a RDX bomb to make a dirty bomb? This is a real possibility, a scenario explored by Americans after 9/11. If a bomb is possible, as per this study, it can potentially make Delhi a cancer hell for a decade or more!

Has the government appointed someone to look after this? I am sure some terrorist would notice this window of opportunity sooner or later. :shudder:
