Police recovered a powerful China-make grenade from the outpatient department of the Regional Institute of Medical Science and Hospital in Imphal west district of Manipur, police said on Sunday.

The hospital authorities informed police after getting an anonymous caller told them that the grenade was placed there late last night, police said.

The grenade was wrapped in paper on which the name of an extremist organisation 'Kangleipak Communist Party' was written.

The grenade was defused by experts. Failure to extort money from the hospital authorities could be the reason for placing the explosive there, police said.
