'Hoax': Home Ministry on Delhi bomb threat email that led to early shutdown of nearly 100 schools

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 01 May 2024, 12:46 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: The Union Home Ministry has called the bomb threat email that led to early shutdown of nearly 100 students in Delhi and Noida "hoax", media reports said.

The ministry's spokesperson has put up a post on X reading, "Some schools in Delhi received threat e-mails this morning. The mails appear to be hoax and there is no need to panic. @DelhiPolice and security agencies are taking all necessary steps as per protocol."

Meanwhile, the origin of the hoax bomb threat email 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."
