A hoax bomb threat on Thursday created a panic at a private bank in Jaipur, a senior police official said.

A peon of Kotak Mahindra Bank in the Chomu Circle area recovered a letter from a flower pot saying that the bank would be blown away with a bomb during June 6-10, Inspector General of Police (Jaipur Range), PK Singh told PTI.

Sniffer dogs were immediately pressed into action and an anti-sabotage squad was also called to avert any crisis, he said.

"Right now there is no threat to the bank as no foreign material was detected by the dogs," he claimed, adding security has been beefed up around the area.
