In March, a bomb threat call to the Chennai airport turned out to be a hoax and two persons were arrested.

On Friday (May 11), a 30-year-old man was arrested for making a hoax call about a bomb planted at the US Consulate in Chennai. Saubar Sadik Basha called up the police control room on Thursday night and claimed that a bomb would go off at the US Consulate in the early hours of Friday. However, nothing suspicious was found after a thorough search of the consulate premises by the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) and sniffer dogs. A probe by the Royapettah police traced the call to Basha, a resident of Mannady area, and he was arrested.
