New Delhi: An anonymous call claiming that a huge quantity of RDX has been stored in the office of a lawyer of Supreme Court here triggered panic among the security agencies but it later turned out to be a hoax.

The call claiming that 50 kg of RDX has been stored in a room in lawyers' chambers near Supreme Court was received at the Police Control Room at around 5 pm, a senior police official said.

Searches were conducted by police in the chambers. "We did not find anything and have declared the call a hoax," he said.

The official said the call was made from a telephone booth.

Police suspect that the call was made by a person who nurses some grudge against the lawyer.

The official refused to identify the lawyer.
