New Delhi, May 13: Security officials were sent into a tizzy when a man called up the control room at Rajouri Garden metro station this evening and said that there was bomb planted in Janakpuri metro station.

The call was received around 8.45 PM, following which a thorough search was conducted at both Janakpuri East and West stations on the blue line of Delhi metro, but no suspicious object was spotted, police said. "It was a hoax call and a case has been registered," DCP (Metro) Jitender Mani said.
