I hope everyone is safe and no bomb is actually present there. Culprits for threatening should be brought to justice.

I recollect a recent judgement against a hoax caller at Mumbai court. He was given life sentence for the fake call.. likewise this call also to be traced and apt punishment to be meted out to the criminal

Since when have we started hanging people in public. India is a civilized nation. Not like the barbaric Saudi Arabia you live in where public execution is daily.
