Bomb scare outside Delhi college (Lead)May 30th, 2011 - 5:14 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 30 (IANS) A bag containing some powder, wires and batteries was found outside an exclusive girls college in south Delhi Monday triggering a bomb scare, but after its examination the police said it was a “mischief and prank”.
The Delhi Police control room received a call around 12.20 p.m. about the bag lying at a bus stop outside the Gargi College gate, an officer said.
“The bag contained powder from which firecrackers are made but it could not have exploded. It appears to be some sort of mischief and prank by somebody,” said Joint Commissioner of Police Amulya Patnaik.
A police officer said the bag contained some wires and batteries, but these were not connected. There was no circuit that could have triggered an explosion.
But the bag did trigger a scare in the area. The bomb disposal squad, a dog squad and Delhi Police teams were rushed to the spot.
According to an eye witness, “It was a small bag and police came here and took it away.”
The latest incident came five days after a crude bomb went off outside in the parking bay of the Delhi High Court complex. No one was injured in the low-intensity explosion.
