Bengaluru man held for making bomb hoax calls

news2Tamil Nadu director general of police K Ramanujam on Wednesday announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh to anyone providing information that leads to the identification of the culprits behind the twin blasts at Chennai Central on May 1.
Meanwhile, a 23-year-old man from Bengaluru, who made three calls to the police control room, Central railway station and ‘108’ ambulance service, saying a bomb would go off at Central station on Tuesday, has been arrested.
Separately, a college student from T Nagar who made a bomb threat call as she wanted a day’s leave to attend a wedding was arrested and released on bail.
The native of Bengaluru, who has been a pavement dweller on Walltax Road for the past few years, sent law enforcement agencies into a tizzy by claiming that a bomb was planted in Chennai Central station, five days after one person died in the twin blasts there.
