Around 100 Schools Closed in Delhi Following Bomb Threat, Exams Disrupted

New Delhi: Around 100 schools in Delhi and Noida were evacuated after they received a bomb threat through email.

Police officials rushed to the schools to conduct thorough search operations.

Sanskriti School in Chanakyapuri, Mother Mary School at Mayur Vihar in east Delhi and Delhi Public School at Dwarka were among the first schools to receive the threat on Wednesday morning.

Later on other schools also received similar threatening mails. All these emails claimed that explosives were planted on the campus.

In Mother Mary School, the examination being conducted was stopped midway and everyone was to leave the premises immediately.

In a mail to parents, DPS said, “This is to inform you that the school has received an email that threatens the safety and security of the students. As a precautionary measure we are sending the students back home immediately.”

Bomb detection team, bomb disposal squad and officials of Delhi Fire Service have been rushed to the schools that received the threats.

But the search operations in the schools did not find any suspicious material. Delhi Police is making efforts to track down the IP address of the threatening emails. It is suspected that the mail was sent to the schools to spread panic.

In February, a similar threat at Delhi Police School in RK Puram was found to be a hoax.
