An explosion in a garbage heap in Chalakkudy town near Thrissur on Wednesday caused some tense moments.

Meanwhile,the KSRTC bus depot in Thrissur and a private bank in Kunnamkulam received anonymous calls claiming that bombs had been planted in these places.

The threat turned out to be hoax after police searched the area thoroughly.
