Grenade hoax at Banani puja mandap

A rumour that an Arges grenade was found near the Gulshan puja mandap in Banani last night caused panic among devotees.
Assistant Commissioner (public relations) Shyamol Mukherjee of Dhaka Metropolitan Police later confirmed that the object contained no explosive.
Rab sources said on information they reached the spot and recovered the object left abandoned at the foot of a wall near the mandap in Banani Park around 8:30pm.
Rab conducted a thorough search on the mandap premises but did not find anything else. The puja committee had postponed a cultural programme out of panic.
DMP official Shyamol said activities at the mandap resumed a few hours later.
