Defused grenade found on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's standby Air India aircraft
Indian security establishment has gone in a tizzy with the discovery of a defused grenade inside an Air India aircraft kept standby in Delhi for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent trip to the US.
The Boeing-747 was kept on standby at IGI Airport, ready to fly out for the Prime Minister in case the Jumbo Jet being used by him developed a snag.
According to sources, the aircraft was released for commercial operation when Modi landed on Thursday night.
On reaching Jeddah in the early hours of Saturday, security agencies found a defused grenade inside the business class of the aircraft.
