Belgaum Dec 15 (UNI) A bomb threat at the court Complex in Belgaum turned out to be a hoax call today.
Police said the Superintendent of Police Office here received an anonymous call at 1045 hrs this morning stating that a bomb had been placed in the court complex and it would explode at 1100 hrs.
The police immediately vacated both old and new court complexes and a thorough check was carried out by the bomb squad arrived for more than hour, but no bomb was found.
