Bomb scare near Dehradun police headquarter
Dehradun: A metallic object lying in a drain close to the police headquarter on Tuesday triggered a bomb scare, compelling bomb squad and police team into action.
The object, lying in a drain along the busy Subhash road in the city, sent passersby into tizzy and they informed the police.
Police rushed to the spot along with a bomb disposal squad, said Manikanth Mishra, Circle Officer of Dalanwala area.
However, after examination, the object turned out to be an unusable cover of a hand grenade, Mishra said.
The object may have been received by some scrap dealer before finding its way into the drain, the officer said.
The bomb scare led to a traffic snarl on the road for nearly half-an-hour.
