外文标题：Defused grenade found on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s standby Air India aircraft
NEW DELHI: Indian security establishment has gone in a tizzy with the discovery of a defused grenade inside an Air India aircraft kept standby in Delhi for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent trip to the US.
The Boeing-746 was kept on standby at IGI Airport, which means it was fully ready to fly out for the PM in case the Jumbo Jet being used by him developed a snag. According to sources, the aircraft was released for commercial operation when Modi landed here on Thursday night.
"The B-747 was sent on a Delhi-Mumbai-Hyderabad-Jeddah flight. On reaching Jeddah in the early hours of Saturday (India time), security agencies there found a defused grenade inside the business class of the aircraft. This sensational discovery of a defused bomb on an aircraft kept standby for the PM has sent everyone in a tizzy," said highly placed sources.
"Jeddah airport security has sanitized the aircraft and given it the clearance to fly out. But now Indian security agencies have taken over this case and are investigating how a defused grenade could make it inside the aircraft. All night long, AI and security agencies have been trying to resolve this mystery, which would be a serious security lapse unless it happens to be an exercise by the security/intelligence agencies to check the alertness of our aviation security wing," said sources.

Now they have gone too far sack them all
Why assume that the grenade had been placed in the aircraft while it stood as stand-by? It could have happened later, even just before it took off for Jeddah. Jeddah as destination could be a significant factor

There should not be any security lapse. Remember the security lapses of Indira Gandhi.
Great security lapse at the Airport.

May be it was an exercise by the security/intelligence agencies to check the alertness of the aviation security wing.
