New Delhi: A diffused grenade was found in the premises of the Red Fort in the national capital, which triggered panic among the local residents, said reports on Friday.

According to ANI, the grenade was found on Thursday evening from a well during a routine operation, after which an alarm was raised.

A team of National Security Guard (NSG) and District Commissioner of Police (DCP) reached the spot and a massive search was launched to sweep the area.

The grenade was taken in for investigation by the officials.

Reports claim that the defused grenade possibly belongs to the World War era.

Earlier in February, ammunition and boxes of explosives were found during cleaning of a well inside Red Fort.

The discovery triggered panic, prompting police to cordon off the area and inform the NSG.
