DDAS, 2008, Nepal, handling, MUV, fuze
During the post-demolition QA of a PMD-6 mine, [the Victim] handled a MUV fuse, complete with MD-2 detonator, which functioned resulting in the auto-amputation of his right hand. The fuse appears to have been left over from an incomplete demolition, which rendered it a misfire without any transit or striker retaining pin in place.
