Poonch: Police on Thursday recovered live grenade near the entrance of house of Choudhary Mohammad Akram, former member of erstwhile Legislative Assembly of J&K from Surankote, in Poonch district.
Quoting official sources, GNS reported that the grenade was found at around 1800 hours near the entrance of Choudhary’s house at Lassana falling in the jurisdiction of police station Surankote. “Police, CRPF and Army reached the spot immediately,” they said.
While the grenade has been recovered, they said, the incident comes five days after streetlight in his lawn was damaged and splinter marks were seen at the wall of his house.
