Trapped 45-year-old was held when he returned to RML Hospital on Thursday to make more calls to police. Forty-five years old Kanta Prasad Sahai, a former gas cylinder supplier, wanted to be a police informer.

He made ten calls to the police control room (PCR) on Tuesday claiming that bombs had been placed at two metro stations, three governments buildings, two railway stations and two hospitals in the city sending more than 200 policemen on a wild goose chase.

Hoaxes from the past

Rose Deb (45) Teacher at Ryan International, Noida.
Earlier this week police arrested Rose Deb for allegedly sending text messages warning of blasts in the Supreme Court and Patiala House court complex. Police said she sent the messages in the name of a particular lawyer with whom she wanted to settle personal scores. Police said she was a habitual offender and had also framed a senior police officer in Noida that ultimately led to his transfer.

Ajit Singh (27) Travel agency executive.
Last month, police arrested a travel agency executive for allegedly making a series of hoax calls warning of a live bomb at Chawri Bazaar Metro Station. Singh, police said, made the calls to take revenge from CISF officials who had once stopped him from entering the metro station as he was in a drunken condition.

Rinku Moni Viadnath (19) Engineering student
In March this year, police arrested an engineering student who dialed the emergency number and talked obscene with the policewomen. On one night he dialed 40 times on 100 and proposed to all the policewomen who attended his calls.

Bhuvan Chandra Pandey (22) Security Guard
In January this year, police arrested a security guard for making 276 calls on one single night and using obscene language on the emergency number. The accused Bhuvan Chandra Pandey made the calls from his mobile phone. A policewoman called him for a cup of coffee and he was arrested as soon as he reached there and identified himself.
