Rusted rocket shell found in Periyapalayam
A bunch of children stumbled upon a rusted shell used in rocket launchers in a playground at Periyapalayam in Tiruvallur on Wednesday.
The police stated the children noticed the metallic jutting out of the bottom close to the Bhavani Amman temple. They dug out the article and sensing one thing fishy, they alerted the police.
Personnel from the Periyapalayam police station took the shell to Gummidipoondi and saved it together with different explosives being destroyed by the Army.
“The shell may have been abandoned here at least 15 years ago. The Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad have taken it to Gummidipoondi,” stated P. Aravindhan, SP, Tiruvallur.
