delhi Updated: Jun 28, 2008 17:30 IST

An anonymous phone call to police this afternoon threatening to blow up a metro station in New delhi triggered panic at the facility.

"The Hauz Qazi Police station received the threat call at around 02.30 pm saying that bombs were placed near the Chawri Bazar metro station and it would be blown up," a senior police officer said.

"Bomb disposal teams and dog squads have been rushed to the spot and searches around the premises are going on," the officer said.

"We are conducting searches and simultaneously trying to identify the caller. The call was made from a PCO at Kashmiri gate metro station," he said.

The Delhi Police have received five phone calls earlier during the last 45 days from unidentified callers threatening to blow up Chawri Bazar metro station, which later turned out to be hoax after intensive searches.
