Silchar: Police on Wednesday recovered a powerful Chinese-made grenade from near a petrol pump in Haflong, the headquarters of troubled Dima Hasao district in Assam.

Police said the grenade was recovered at about 0730 hrs. Soon the area was cordoned off by the security forces. Members of the Army’s bomb defusing squad defused the explosive.

Police said it was yet to be identified who had planted it. A hunt was on to nab the miscreants.

The incident triggered fresh fear in the hill station after two people were killed, four injured, 27 Dimasa houses torched and a goods train targeted in the southern Assam district since October 5. (UNI)
