Abandoned hand grenade shaped cigarette lighter creates scare in Delhi metro station at Faridabad Line
Officials said the incident was reported from the Sector 28 station (Violet Line) of Faridabad around 9.30 am when a passenger informed on-duty CISF personnel about a grenade-like object kept on the wall near an escalator in the station.
Soon after, they said, the area was cordoned off by CISF personnel and a bomb disposal and canine squad was rushed in to undertake anti-sabotage checks against the possible ammunition.
“As the area where the grenade-like object was kept is not under CCTV surveillance and is much behind the security check area, it could not be ascertained as to who kept it there.
“Possibly, it was abandoned by some commuter before taking the Metro as it would have been recovered by security personnel during manual frisking or x-ray scanning of the baggage,” they said.
