VIJAYAWADA: The Railway Protection Force has arrested K. Srinivas, a native of Relangi near Tadepalligudem, on the charge of making a hoax bomb call for the Amaravathi Express on September 24. A case was registered against Srinivas.

RPF inspector M. Chenchayya said Srinivas had made the call with a view to stopping the train at Tadepalligudem so that his owner would catch the train. Srinivas made the call from a public booth in Tadepalligudem. When the RPF officials inquired at the booth, they gave the clue about Srinivas. The RPF officials retrieved the phone number from the caller ID of Central Railway Inquiry.
