A security scare was on Friday triggered here after residents saw a car parked near a hotel here with a warning of a bomb blast scribbled on its door panel.

Panic gripped passersby who saw the inscription and the police were informed. The bomb disposal squad thoroughly checked the white Maruti car but found nothing in it, police said.

Police said that the car was parked outside the Leisure Valley in Sector 10 here by two women who had come for a stroll. However, a "mischievous person" scribbled the words "bom(b) blast at" with a blue sketch pen on one of its door panel.

The passersby panicked apprehending that it might be carrying some explosives.

The car was later brought to the police station and the women quizzed by the police.
