Bomb threat turns out to be hoax in Dindigul
Dindigul: An anonymous letter sent on Wednesday
stating that bombs had been planted at the DMK party office, a
private school and the District Court here turned out to be a
hoax, police said.
Though the `from address` of the letter sent to the
District and Sessions Judge Basheer Ahamed gave a Tiruchi
address, it had been posted from Dindigul, police said.
The letter stated that the bombs were planted in protest
against the effort of the ruling DMK to "strangulate
democracy", police said.
The letter further claimed the bombs would be activated by
remote control and "would blast any time" in the next three
days, they said.
However a search of the three places named in the letter
proved its claims to be a hoax, they said.
