the routine local_change_bond in particle_data.c can both add and delete a 
bond. However, note that a bond is always attached to a particle. That is, 
assume there is a bond between particles 3 and 5. If you added the bond to 
particle 3, then only particle 3 carries the information that those two 
particles are bonded. If you want to delete the bond, you need to delete it 
from particle 3. That is, you need:

int x[] = {type, 5};
local_change_bond(3, x, 1);

However, there is no problem if the bond doesn't exist; therefore you can 
simply delete both possible bonds, that is, also call:

int x[] = {type, 3};
local_change_bond(5, x, 1);
