Delhi police detain a person from Paharganj in connection with hoax bomb call at Odeon cinema in Connaught Place on Saturday, say officials.

Earlier, security officials were sent into a tizzy when a man called up the police control room and claimed to have planted a bomb at a popular cinema hall in posh Connaught Place in the heart of the city.

The call was received around 1.15 PM, following which several police teams, fire tenders and bomb disposal squads were rushed to the Odeon complex, and the premises were evacuated, a Delhi Fire Department official said.

“The call was received at the police control room and the building is being thoroughly inspected,” Additional DCP (New Delhi) Romil Baniya said.
