A grenade launcher that allegedly exploded at a Polish police headquarters, injuring a top commander, had not been subjected to any border or customs checks as it arrived in the country from Ukraine, Poland’s Zet radio has reported.
The weapon had been delivered to Poland by train, which runs between Ukraine and the Polish border town of Przemysl, sources told the outlet on Friday.
“There are still many question marks in this case,” Zet radio has claimed.
Reports of a blast at the Polish police headquarters in Warsaw emerged on Wednesday, with the Interior Ministry soon confirming that the commander-in-chief, General Jaroslaw Szymczyk, had been injured by a “gift” he received from Kiev officials during his recent trip to Ukraine.
The commander and a civilian employee, who was also caught in the blast, escaped with minor injuries while the ceiling of the building was damaged by shrapnel.
