Indore: A routine search at the Madhya Pradesh High Court bench premises here today sparked off a rumour about a bomb being planted there, leading to panic.

Additional Superintendent of Police Maheshchandra Jain maintained that the search conducted by the police was a routine exercise.

"We did not get any information that a bomb had been kept in the HC's premises," the ASP said, adding the police searched every part of the court as part of a routine exercise.

The police along with bomb disposal squad and sniffer dogs searched the HC premises but did not find anything.

After a bomb blast in Pune in February, the Home Ministry had sounded an alert in Indore and two other places in the country.

Police are on their toes here and keeping a close watch on important establishments since then.
