Panic was triggered in the heart of the national capital on Monday after police received an anonymous call threatening to blow up a multi-storeyed building which later turned out to be a hoax.

Police received a call at around 8:15 am that explosives were placed at New Delhi House building on Barakhamba road, a stone's throw away from the spot where a bomb exploded on Saturday evening.

The call was declared a hoax, a senior police official said.
