However, the “grenade” turned out to be a false alarm as it was actually a powerbank.

According to The Star, Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said the workers at TRX construction site alerted the authorities when they discovered an object that looked like a hand grenade at 12:50 pm.

“The Bomb Disposal Unit (UPB) was deployed to the location while personnel from the mobile patrol vehicle unit were also dispatched. Upon checks, the UPB team leader confirmed that the object was just a power bank, and not a grenade,” he said.
