New Delhi: A text message that got
circulated over Blackberry phones claiming that a bomb has
been recovered in south Delhi on Wednesday triggered panic but turned
out to be a hoax.

Blackberry messenger, claimed that bomb disposal squads
recovered a bomb in Vasant Kunj, a senior police official
said.

"The message got forwarded to so many people and this
triggered some panic. It claimed that the bomb disposal squads
sent by police recovered a bomb. We have not sent anyone and
we have not recovered any bomb," the official said adding the
message has been declared a hoax.

Investigations are on to ascertain how the message was
generated and who sent it.

Kailash to check the preparedness of various security agencies
in case of a terror attack.
