Bomb hoax triggers panic on Shatabdi at Gurugram railway station

Gurugram, November 25

Panic gripped the Ajmer-Delhi Shatabdi Express last night after the police control room received an anonymous call about a bomb on the train.

The train was stopped at the Gurugram railway station and hundreds of passengers deboarded. The dog and bomb disposal squads were called in, which frisked the train and the platforms for almost two hours. During the checking, the police did not find anything and the train left for Delhi at 11.38 pm.

On Wednesday, the Government Railway Police registered a case against the man who made the hoax call. The police said the mobile number was registered on the name of one Ravindra (35) of Karawal Nagar in Delhi. “His number is switched off since the call and he has not reached home yet,” they said.
