Bomb threat proves to be a hoax

DINDIGUL: A special bomb detection and disposal squad thoroughly scanned important churches and temples in Kodaikanal on Sunday following receipt of anonymous letters to the police station and to the post office in the hill station stating that a bomb was planted in a religious centre.

Sniffer dogs were pressed into service. Polic team checked Saleth Madha Church, St. Antony’s Church, Annai Velankanni Shrine and Kurinji Andavar Temple. The threat turned out to be a hoax.
