A hoax bomb call triggered panic at Shiv Sena party's headquarters on Wednesday.

A call was received at Sena Bhavan claiming that a bomb has been planted inside the building in at Dadar in central Mumbai. However, nothing suspicious was found during a thorough search by Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad, police said.

An anonymous caller phoned at the office of five-storeyed Sena Bhavan this afternoon stating that a bomb was planted and everybody should leave the building, they said.

"Soon after the call office-bearers of the party informed us and the entire building was evacuated," said S R Unavane, Senior Inspector at Shivaji Park Police Station.

The BDDS was pressed into service and a thorough search was carried out for over two hours but nothing suspicious was found, he said.

"There was no caller identification facility on the phone at which the call was received. It has become bit difficult for us to trace the call," he said adding that the caller was speaking in Hindi. Further probe was on.
