Gurugram, November 24
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.
The police, however, will probe whether the call was made by Ravindra himself or by someone else.
As per the police, the information was received from the Rewari control room at 9.20 pm on Tuesday. The caller claimed that he had got down at Rewari and the train with a bomb in its coach (07161/C) was heading to Delhi. “On Wednesday, a team reached Ravindra’s house and talked to his father, who said his son hasn’t returned from Rajasthan. We will nab him soon,” said ASI Ramphal, investigating officer. — OC
