Bomb hoax at private hospital in Noida triggers panic



A bomb hoax at a private hospital in Noida triggered massive panic and prompted the quick deployment of police personnel and bomb-disposal squads at the spot, officials said on Thursday.

“A person had called on the landline number of Kailash Hospital in Sector-27 and said there was a bomb in the building's basement,” a police officer said.

“Police personnel, bomb-disposal squads, dog squads and fire tenders had reached the hospital immediately, and we checked the building for any suspicious item. It turned out to be a hoax call,” Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, Noida, Ranvijay Singh said.

Meanwhile, an investigation was launched into the matter, and efforts are on to track the caller.
