New Delhi: A grenade found in a well at Delhi's historic Red Fort has sparked a security scare.
The grenade was found last evening. A bomb disposal team is at the spot, checking whether the grenade is live.
In February too, bullets and boxes of explosives were found inside the Red Fort complex during a clean-up drive.
Thousands of tourists visit the Mughal-built monument in the heart of Delhi, where Independence Day celebrations are held every year.
The fort has been under heavy security since it was attacked by Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists in December 2000. Two soldiers and a civilian were killed in the attack.
