The victim who has been out of the country, had no idea that his late father, a military official popularly known as ancient combatant had kept a grenade in the house.

Ancient combatant retired from the military ten years ago and died some six months ago but didn't seem to remember anything about the grenade.

The son who came back from abroad, built a different house for his family and was in the process of transferring some house properties to the new house, when he met his doom. Reports say he died on the spot.

According to a statement from the ministry of communications issued a day after, first indications suggested that it was an accident, although different factions of armed separatists insist they carried out the attack.
