Ghaziabad, May 4 (IANS) Four students of the Chhabeel Das Public School here who made a hoax bomb call to the school were detained and let off after a warning, police said on Wednesday.
All the students were from Class XI.
“During investigation it came to light that one of them made the call from a Chinese smart wrist watch by inserting a SIM,” police officer Manish Mishra said.
“They admitted that when they made the call, they were attending their class. They also came out when the school was evacuated after the call and went home,” the officer said.
“Being juvenile they were let off after a warning and assurance of their good conduct from their parents,” he added.
At about 11 a.m. on Tuesday, the school got a call on its landline phone warning that a bomb had been placed on the first floor of the academic block.
The police were alerted and the school was evacuated. After two hours of search, it became clear it was a hoax call.
