Udhagamandalam: A time-bomb like object, found
in front of the house of a farmer at Puliyampara village near
Gudalur,about 60 KM from here today, created tense moments.

The farmer, Shoukat Ali, saw the one-foot long object--a
digital clock connected with fuse wires and informed
neighbours.

Some youths, after informing police, took and threw it in
an estate compound across the road, police said.
Police, along with fire service and bomb disposal squad,
examined it and found that the object was not an explosive and
that somebody could have played a trick on the farmer to scare
him, police added.
