Pune: Hand grenade found near Railway station parking facility, sent for forensic analysis after being destroyed by bomb disposal squad

The hand grenade was found to be a dangerous one and it has been sent to the forensic laboratory by the bomb disposal squad. The Pune police have started their investigation to nab the culprits. 

A hand grenade was found near the parking facility of Pune railway station on Friday afternoon. The Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) was immediately rushed to the spot, who destroyed the grenade, police said.

According to the reports, an employee working in the railway station alerted the Pune police after he saw a grenade near the premises. The Pune police soon informed the bomb disposal unit, who carried out the operation for over four hours. The object was taken to the nearby RPF Ground and neutralised and then sent to the forensic laboratory for further tests.

The activity was carried out in a subtle manner to make sure that passengers did not panic after the grenade was found.

“We got a call at 12 noon after which the area was evacuated and the BDDS was deployed. We have intimated defence establishments in the vicinity to see if they can provide further information on the grenade-like object,” the police official added.

Reportedly, the hand grenade was found to be a dangerous one and it has been sent to the forensic laboratory by the bomb disposal squad. The Pune police have started their investigation to nab the culprits. So far, both the RPF and the police have no leads and are talking to people around the station for any information there was no CCTV at the railway station.
