Delhi bomb threat email that led to shutdown of nearly 100 schools 'traced'

New Delhi/IBNS: The origin of the hoax bomb threat email that forced the early shutdown of nearly 100 schools in Delhi and Noida has been traced, said Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena.

"The Delhi Police have traced the origin of the emails. I am assuring citizens of Delhi that the police are alert, getting leads, and will take strict action," Saxena said as quoted by NDTV.

The schools were evacuated after the classes were stopped midway and students were asked to leave. Examinations in some of the schools were also disrupted.

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."
