Hoax bomb threat calls keep police on their toes
Chennai: A day after twin blasts at the Central Railway Station here left one person dead, a spate of hoax bomb threat calls kept the city police on their toes, even as they warned of strict action against those spreading rumours.
A prominent city shopping mall, an educational institution and a suburban railway station received bomb threat calls, prompting security officials to launch full-scale search of the respective premises, police said.
However, all these calls turned out to be hoax, City Police Commissioner J K Tripathy said.
Strongly condemning such rumours, he warned of strict action against anybody spreading such falsehoods.
Meanwhile, police were on the lookout for those who had made the hoax bomb threat calls.
A 24-year-old techie from Andhra Pradesh was killed and 14 persons were injured in twin blasts in two coaches of the Bangalore-Guwahati Express last night.
