The police today cracked the case of a fake bomb call made at a local school in Tripuri. Apart from arresting the suspect, the police have recovered a dummy bomb from the school premises. The police said the dummy bomb was planted by the father of a student at the school. SP Patiala Muhammad Sarfaraz Alam said the suspect was upset after his name was removed from the WhatsApp group of the parents of the school students.

The SP added that Jaswinder Singh Tiwana, SHO of the Tripuri police station, and his examined activities around the school through civil surveillance and CCTV footage. It was found that threatening letters were scattered in and around the school premises, targeting students, parents, teachers and administrators. After the police investigation, Jagmeet Singh, a resident of Anand Nagar Extension, was arrested on Friday.
