Toy causes panic in Bangalore ahead of Modi visit

A pink teddy bear abandoned at the city railway station parking lot created panic ahead of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's rally in Bangalore on Sunday morning.

Responding to the appeal made by police through SMSes asking people to be careful about suspicious objects and to report the matter, a few passers by noticed the teddy bear at City railway station's parking lot and immediately alerted the police.

A team of police with the anti sabotage personnel rushed to the spot. The police cordoned the area and conducted a thorough check to confirm that it was just a soft toy.

"Someone in a hurry might have left the toy behind", a police official said adding that the Upparpet police was further inquiring to ascertain if it could be a prank.
