New Delhi: Security officials were sent into a tizzy on Saturday when a drunk man called up the police control room today and claimed to have planted a bomb at a popular cinema hall in Connaught Place area in the heart of the city.
The Bomb Squad was alerted and after investigations, it was found that the bomb scare was a hoax call and nothing suspicious was found. However, the Delhi Police has now detained a man from Paharganj in connection with the same and is being probed.
Several police teams, fire tenders and bomb disposal squads were rushed to the Odeon complex, and the premises were evacuated, a Delhi Fire Department official said. "The call was received at the police control room and the building is being thoroughly inspected," Additional DCP (New Delhi) Romil Baniya said.
