In what is seen as a major security lapse, a defused grenade was found in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's standby Air India aircraft. The defused grenade was recovered from the aircraft that was kept on standby for Modi's recent US trip. The discovery of grenade left security personnel red-faced and thrown them in a tizzy situation.
The Boeing 746 was on standby at IGI Airport in Delhi, which was ready to take Mr Modi, in case Modi's Jumbo Jet developed any technical snag. Soon after wrapping up of Modi's US trip, the aircraft was sent for commercial purpose where security agencies found a defused bomb in the business class of the aircraft. This sensational discovery of defused bomb in none other than Modi's standby aircraft has come as a major embarrassment for security personnel.
