Mumbai, Aug 27 (UNI) Security was tightened in the metropolis after the Railway Protection Force (RPF) received an anonymous call, threatening to blow up some railway stations on the Western and Central lines and religious places here.

The call was received at 1130 hrs, stating that they were planning to blow up the stations and religious places by 1600 hrs, RPF sources said.

The RPF then informed the city's Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) about the threat.

Sniffer dogs and bomb disposal squads were put into service at some of the main Railway terminals. The ATS personnel also entered a few local train coaches for combing operations, the sources added.

However, nothing was found, indicating it was an hoax call.
