Army Destroys 151 Grenades In Tripura


Agartala: A faction of the Indian Army on Saturday destroyed over 151 grenades, which were buried underground during the construction of a road here.

Soon after receiving a court order on Friday to dispose these grenades in lieu of public safety, a team of experts cordoned off the area and successfully carried out a destruction operation.

“As soon as we received the order, we sent it to a team of experts who took the grenades to a secluded area and destroyed them without causing any casualties. A total of 51 grenades were disposed by the team,” said Ajit Pratap, Superintendent of Police (SP)-Tripura North.
