The police confirmed the call was a hoax after a five-hour search. Police received a similar call about a bomb being planted at a Delhi Metro station and a market in Gurgaon on Wednesday which too was found to be a hoax after a four-hour search.
Both the calls were made from the same number. A caller on Thursday informed the Delhi Police Control Room that a high intensity bomb has been planted in the Arcadia and adjoining multi-storey building having offices in it.
“Gurgaon police was informed by Delhi Police about the bomb threat. The caller used the same mobile number he used in a threat call on Wednesday,” a senior police officer said.”The number has been issued from Odisha but the location of the caller shows in the National Capital Region (NCR),” he said.
