Bomb hoax at Charminar

An anonymous bomb threat call created panic at historical Charminar located in the old city area in the city today soon after the Friday prayer’s at the Makkah Masjid.

The call which was received by the police control room in the afternoon, immediately alerted the security wing. Besides cordoning off the entire area, police immediately swung into action and thoroughly searched the historical monument with dog squad and a bomb disposal squad, but nothing was found and the call turned out to be a hoax.
