Coimbatore: An anonymous call that a bomb
planted in a girls` high school in the city would explode any
time proved to be hoax today, police said.

The school on Mettupalayam Road received a call from a
woman this noon, saying explosives planted in a classroom
would explode any time, creating a scare, officials said.

The school management declared a holiday immediately and
dispersed children and staff.

Police and bomb squad thoroughly searched the campus with
sniffer dogs but no explosives were found, they added.
