Lady Shri Ram College and Sri Venkateswara College in Delhi on Thursday received bomb threat calls, authorities informed. The Delhi Fire Service department said that fire engines, and Delhi Police teams were rushed to the spot. A search process is underway at both college sites. This has come just a day after the Home Ministry in North Block received a bomb threat email, triggering a security alert in the national capital.

A Delhi Fire Service (DFS) officials said a call was received at 4.38 pm and two fire tenders have been pressed into service. The local police, a bomb disposal squad, a bomb detection team have arrived at the spot along with a dog squad and are conducting searches. The officials said they have found nothing suspicious yet.
