Kolkata: Security authorities were on Thursday thrown in a tizzy after a bomb scare at the Calcutta High Court premises.
"Justice Dipankar Dutta's office got a phone call around 2 p.m. that bombs planted at different chambers on the High Court premises will go off any time. However, the call turned out to be a hoax," Joint commissioner Police Supratim Sarkar said.
"A bomb squad, along with sniffer dogs, was rushed to the premises but no trace of any bomb or explosives was found even after a thorough search till evening," he said.
Police said it is trying to trace the caller who played the prank.
