A Grenade for Chinese New Year

Hi there...

It was still festive season in Malaysia - people of all races, were happily celebrating the coming of the year Tiger, in the Chinese Lunar Calendar.

Unmarried persons shall receive angpow (money in red packets)..

But in Nibong Tebal, Pulau Pinang, a northern state in Malaysia, a trader received his "angpow" in the form of a deadly tool - A Hand Grenade..!!!!

Grenade kills people with sharpnels flying in all directions at supersonic speed!!!

On 28 February 2010, The Star newspaper (Malaysia) reported that a hand grenade was thrown for the third time in seven months at the house of a businessman in Taman Sungai Bakap Permai in Sungai Bakap, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia.

This time the grenade was found in the compound of the house with the safety pin already removed...!!!

In July last year, a grenade with the pin intact was found outside the house compound of the same guy. It was the first incident.

Second incident followed in December last year.

This time, the grenade exploded, slightly damaging the windows.

South Seberang Prai OCPD Supt Shafien Mamat said police was alerted at about 5.45pm on Saturday on the latest incident.

A police bomb squad then detonated the grenade.

Police were investigating if the latest attack was related to the two previous incidents.

“The prime suspect detained in connection with those incidents is still in our custody,” he said.

Supt Shafien urged those with information to contact the police at 04-5824222 or the nearest police station.

Well this is what a Hand Grenade explosion looked and sounds like :

The killing zone or damage magnitude depends on the type of Grenade, the country that produce them and the explosive device used!!
