Bomb hoax: passenger train cancelled

Staff Reporter

GUNTUR: Repalle-Secunderabad Delta Fast Passenger was cancelled on Monday between Repalle and Tenali and in the return direction following a bomb hoax call to Tenali Station Master at 8.20 p.m.

Divisional Commissioner Security Santharam told The Hindu that the caller was traced to Isakapalle and he was a farmer.

The farmer made the call from cell No.9291186070, which enabled the Railway to take the help of the phone company to trace the owner of the cell and detain him for enquiry.

The caller had told the Station Master that he had placed bombs at four places.

The Government Railway Police and RPF personnel immediately swung into action and made thorough search of the track.

However, when the alleged caller was traced, it became clear that it was a hoax call.
