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

Police said there was no room for any anxiety as it was not caused by a bomb.

The explosion was caused either by remnants of cracker or glass bottles thrown into the garbage heap.

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.
