New Delhi: A telephone call claiming that a
bomb has been planted in a cinema hall here sent the security
agencies into a tizzy this evening but it later turned out be
a hoax and police arrested one person in this regard.

A call was received at Sangam Cinema in south Delhi`s R K
Puram at 6:44 pm that a bomb has been placed in the hall, a
senior police official said.

Police was informed and Bomb disposal teams and dog
squads were rushed to the spot.

After searches at the multiplex, which is screening
Shahrukh Khan-starrer `My Name is Khan`, police declared the
call as a hoax.

Nagri, after technical surveillance, the sources said.
