Ahmedabad: Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) and the dog squad were rushed to the Le Meridian hotel in Khanpur area of the city following a phone call that there was a bomb inside the hotel today, police said.
The call turned out to be a hoax as nothing suspicious was found in the hotel premises after a search by the BDS and sniffer dogs, they said.
However, the call led to panic among the guests, many of them were foreigners and they were shifted to another hotel as a precaution, police said.
"We did not find anything in the hotel. We have searched each and every room there," BDS chief R D Yadav told reporters.
"Efforts are on to trace the person who phoned in to say there was a bomb in the hotel," he added, declining to divulge details.
