Bomb threat: At least ten schools in different parts of Delhi received a bomb threat email on Wednesday morning. As per the precautionary measure, the schools have been evacuated and the Delhi Police are conducting a thorough search of the premises, officials said. The Delhi Public School in Dwarka, Mother Marry School in East Mayur Vihar, Sanskriti School and Amity School in Saket among others have received bomb threats through email.

According to police, the bomb disposal squad and officials of Delhi Fire Service have been rushed to the school and a search operation is underway. Police said that an investigation is being done according to the threatening emails. A mail has been sent to many schools at around 4 am in the morning today. 

On calls regarding bomb threats in different schools of Delhi, the Delhi Fire Department said that it is a mock drill, and nothing has been found anywhere, although no clarity has come from the side of Delhi Police yet.

Delhi Police on threat

Several schools in Delhi received bomb threats via email early this morning. The IP address of the email shows that it is from outside the country, Delhi Police suspects that the IP address may be hidden through VPN, and the investigation is ongoing.

"During the initial investigation, it seems that since yesterday till now the mail has been sent to many places and it seems to be on the same pattern. Date line is not mentioned and BCC is mentioned in the mail, which means one mail has been sent to many places. At present an investigation is being done," said Delhi Police.
