Bomb hoax ticks off Writers’ Building

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Kolkata: On Tuesday, following an email claiming bombs were planted at the West Bengal secretariat, the 200-year-old Writers’ Building was evacuated. Police later informed that it turned out to be a hoax.

Most of the departments in the majestic heritage complex were shifted to the “Nabanna” building in the neighbouring Howrah district due to the undergoing renovations.

Bomb disposal and sniffer dogs were dispatched immediately and the building was evacuated after an email sent to the city police headquarters at Lalbazar claimed bombs were planted there.

“So far, nothing has been found. It seems to be a hoax,” said Joint Commissioner of Police Rajiv Mishra.
