The Railway police on Wednesday arrested a person from Hyderabad who made hoax calls saying bombs were planted in the Bhubaneswar-Mumbai Konark Express yesterday.

A joint team of Crime Investigation Branch (CIB), Railway Protection Force (RPF), Special Investigation Branch (SIB), and Government Railway Police (GRP) had initiated a probe into the matter and nabbed the accused identified as Thorri Karthik (19), a resident of Gandhi Maisamma Colony, Bahadurpally in Hyderabad.

According to the railway police, he confessed to the offence stating that he made the hoax call to see the response of the police department. The accused has been handed over to GRP for further legal action.

Earlier yesterday, the railway police went on alert after an anonymous phone call was received on Dial 100 that bombs have been planted on trains heading towards Mumbai from Visakhapatnam.
