Puducherry: A red-coloured round object was found inside an abandoned suitcase in an unreserved compartment of the Dadar-Puducherry Chalukya Express here today sending security personnel into a tizzy.
The bomb disposal squad retrieved the object and an examination confirmed that there was no explosive barring some iron pieces with some adhesive like substance inside a small container made of tin sheet, Superintendent of Police S. Ramaraju told reporters here.

The object, similar to a ball, was connected to a mobile phone, he said.
The official said there was an hand written slogan inside the suitcase which read `Mayan Calendar`, adding, it was only a hoax to cause scare.

The suitcase was found by a station employee while cleaning the compartment of the train.
