Kozhikode: The city police on Thursday received an anonymous letter stating that bombs would explode at the Kozhikode District Court Complex here on Saturday. The police bomb squad and dog squad carried out search operation in the morning. A similar threat letter was also delivered at the office of the Malayala Manorama daily on Wednesday. The post card signed by `Al-Azad' was handed over to Kozhikode City Police Commissioner Balram Kumar Upadhyay.

Justice K.A. Abdul Gafoor of the High Court of Kerala is to attend programmes including a function of the Calicut Bar Association in the afternoon on Saturday. Police suspect that people aware of the developments and day-to-day activities of the Court might have sent the letter.

However, security has been tightened at the Court Complex, officials said.
