  • A Swedish policeman searches the area outside a Stockholm metro station

A man has died after picking up what police believe was a hand grenade outside a subway station in southern Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, Swedish Television reported on Sunday.

The blast took place at about 11am on Sunday, just outside the Varby Gard underground station in Huddinge, a residential district in greater Stockholm, said regional police spokesman Sven-Erik Olsson.

The deceased, a 60-year-old man, had been taken to the hospital with serious injuries after an object he picked up off the ground exploded.

Although some media said that the object was a hand grenade, the police have not confirmed that information or the possibility that it was a terrorist act.

There were 34 accused in the case, out of which 11 died during the trial, while one turned CBI approver and admitted to the crime. The court had found his predecessor and former CM of Bihar Jagannath Mishra not guilty and acquitted him of all charges.

Police declined to confirm that report, for which the newspaper named no sources. "I don't dare imagine what would have happened if one or several children had found the hand grenade".

A 45-year-old woman was also hospitalized, but her condition is unknown.

"It is too early to say".

Police have cordoned off an area outside the entrance to the metro station Varby Gard, and are investigating the incident.
