Police and security agencies were sent in a tizzy over a call which later turned out to be hoax, about a bomb blast near historic Jama Masjid in walled city, in the evening on Tuesday. “A PCR call was received at 5.17 PM on Tuesday where the caller said that there had been a bomb blast and 50 people were reportedly injured. When the local police checked, the call was found to be a hoax,” DCP (PCR) R K Singh said.
The caller, a man, while calling the PCR claimed that the several persons were injured in the blast. The entire area was scanned after the call although the call was found to be a hoax. Police said that the caller was traced to Seelampur. Through the mobile number, the caller was identified as one Chaudhary Bangad and police was trying to nab him.
