Live tank shell found in Gurgaon

Gurgaon: A live tank round was found near a police station here today and was detonated in a deserted area by an army team from Delhi, police said.

The 3.5 feet long shell was found 100 yards away from the Kherki Daula police station in a vacant plot on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway.

“We called an army team from Delhi. They said that it was a tank shell that was used in the 1960s. An ordnance team of the army detonated it in a deserted spot,” Rahul Sharma, deputy commissioner of police (south), told.

He added that the shell may have been abandoned by a scrap vendor.
