The organelle is lysosomes. 

Lysosomes   are the membrane-bound vesicles, which contain digestive (hydrolytic) enzymes like acid hydrolase. They are also known as ‘ suicide-bags’   of cells as they burst out and release hydrolytic enzymes in the cytosol, where cells are heavily  injured.

Functions of lysosomes:

  • They digest macromolecules by phagocytosis, endocytosis, or autophagy

  • They also take part in auto-cell lysis.

Hope this helps you..!!

Cheers...!!!
