Bangalore: Authorities went into a tizzy after the Karnataka Public Service Commission building near Vidhana Soudha, the state secretariat, here received a bomb threat call on Saturday, which later turned out to be a hoax.
A KPSC officials received an anonymous call around 2.30 pm stating that four bombs planted around the building would explode around 3 pm, Central DCP BR Ravikante Gowda told PTI.
