New Delhi, Oct 5: Delhi police on Tuesday, Oct 5 afternoon received an anonymous call that a bomb has been placed inside the Commonwealth Games Village prompting an alert and a thorough security check.

The residential complex with 14 blocks, 34 towers and 1,168 air-conditioned apartments, which host around 7,000 athletes and officials, was checked thoroughly by dog squads and bomb disposal teams.
