Bomb threat forces 60 Delhi schools to shut early, exams stopped midway

New Delhi/IBNS: A bomb threat via email forced 60 schools in Delhi and Noida to get dismissed early on Wednesday morning, media reports said.

The schools were evacuated after the classes were stopped midway and students were asked to leave.

Police officials are conducting search operations.

However, the source of email is yet to be deciphered.

Delhi Police spokesperson Suman Nalwa told NDTV, "We are taking all appropriate measures at the schools which have received bomb threats. I request parents not to panic, as nothing suspicious has been found."

"This is a mischief, a mail has been sent to all the schools on such a large scale to spread panic. The cyber cell unit is also trying to trace the email and IP address," police further said.

Sanskriti School in Chanakyapuri, Mother Mary School in Mayur Vihar were among the first schools to receive the bomb threat.

Delhi Education Minister Atishi posted on X, "Some schools have received bomb threats today morning. Students have been evacuated and those premises are being searched by Delhi Police. So far nothing has been found in any of the schools.

"We are in constant touch with the Police and the schools. Would request parents and citizens not to panic. School authorities will be in touch with parents wherever needed."
