The grenades were taken to the police lines where the bomb disposal squad would defuse them.

Police recovered about 10 kg of explosives and 20 litres of ammonium nitrate from a waiting room of the Faizabad railway station on May 23, hours after serial blasts rocked the temple-town of Gorakhpur on Tuesday.
