A defused grenade was found last night on the business class of an aircraft flying to Jeddah, sparking a security scare. The Boeing 747-400 had been kept as a standby for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent five-day US visit.

The grenade was reportedly found by the flight crew on board Flight which was flying on the Mumbai-Hyderabad-Jeddah route.

On landing at Jeddah, the incident was reported to the local security agencies who took over the aircraft, sources said.

“A suspicious object was found on board this aircraft. The investigations are on,” an Air India Spokesperson told PTI.

The aircraft, which has been cleared and released by the Jeddah airport security, is still in the city as Indian security personnel were still investigating the matter.
