Bomb hoax in Delhi

New Delhi, May 23 : Panic gripped people in a multi-storey building here after a letter warning of a bomb inside was recovered Thursday afternoon, police said. However, the threat turned out to be a hoax.

The manager of the 10-storey district centre in Janakpuri in west Delhi called police to report that a letter saying that a bomb has been placed in the building was recovered from the toilet on the sixth floor, a police officer said.

A police team, a bomb disposal squad and fire tenders were rushed to the building, but after three hours of intensive search nothing suspicious was found in the building. Police then declared the letter a hoax and the building safe.
