Bomb threats were sent via email to four hospitals in Delhi on Tuesday. This comes after similar messages were sent to 20 hospitals, the airport, and the office of the Northern Railways' CPRO in the capital two days ago. However, nothing suspicious has been found yet.

 

Officials from Delhi Fire Service said that they received calls about bomb threat emails from four hospitals in various parts of the city. The hospitals were GTB Hospital, Dada Dev Hospital, Hedgewar Hospital, and Deep Chandra Bandhu Hospital. 

 

The bomb disposal squad, bomb detection team, fire department, and local police rushed to the hospitals to conduct searches.

 

According to a DFS official, the spate of calls began at 10:45 a.m. At 9:45 a.m., Deep Chand Bandhu Hospital in north Delhi's Ashok Vihar was the first hospital called. The second call came at 10:55 a.m. from Dada Dev Hospital in Dabri, southwest Delhi. 

 

The third call was received at 11:01 a.m. from Hedgewar Hospital in east Delhi's Farsh Bazar, and the fourth call was received at 11:12 a.m. from GTB Hospital in Shahdara, also in east Delhi.

 

"Police and the bomb disposal squad are conducting the checks. We have also conducted checks twice. Nothing suspicious has been found so far," said V K Sharma, security officer at Hedgewar Hospital.

 

The mail about an explosive in the hospital was received by a doctor at the hospital, he said.

 

This is the fourth time in the last month that various places, including schools, have received such threats.

 

Before Sunday, when the airport and the 20 hospitals got bomb threats, Delhi's Chacha Nehru Hospital received a bomb threat on April 30. On May 1, about 150 schools got email threats from a Russia-based mailing service company. 

 

In Rajasthan’s Jaipur, over 50 schools here received bomb threats via email on Monday morning, triggering panic among students and their parents, police said.

 

No explosives or suspicious items have been found in these schools so far. The threatening emails to schools came 12 days after a similar scare in Delhi-NCR, where 150 schools received bomb-threat emails from a Russia-based mailing service on May 1. 

 

On Sunday, 20 hospitals in Delhi received similar emails. 

 

The emails to schools in Jaipur also happened to come on the 16th anniversary of the serial bomb blast incident in the Rajasthan capital.
