The Chinese Police found that the grenade had not detonated and they were unsure if the device had explosives inside it.It was only when the man was handed a police leaflet that he realised that he possessed a forbidden explosive.
The grenade was gifted to him by a friend, reported Huanqiu and had not detonated according to police, who were unsure whether it still contained explosives.
Could the grenade have actually gone off? It may have been an inert training grenade, although those are usually clearly marked–and this one has no markings at all. If it was real, the explosives inside the grenade could have gradually become unstable over time, making it dangerous to handle.
