Officials said on Tuesday that Delhi’s Tihar Jail received a bomb threat email, along with similar warnings sent to schools, hospitals, and even the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport in the city.

The jail administration has alerted Delhi Police about the threat, and searches are currently being conducted inside the prison, which houses high-profile inmates, including key politicians.

Earlier in the day, four hospitals in Delhi received bomb threats via email.

Delhi Fire Service officials stated that they received calls reporting bomb threat emails from GTB Hospital, Dada Dev Hospital, Hedgewar Hospital, and Deep Chandra Bandhu Hospital.

As of now, nothing suspicious has been found, according to the officials.

In response, the bomb disposal squad, bomb detection team, fire department, and local police were dispatched to these hospitals to conduct searches.

V.K. Sharma, the security officer at Hedgewar Hospital, confirmed that the police and bomb disposal squad are conducting checks and that the hospital has also conducted checks twice. No suspicious items have been found so far.

This marks the fourth time in the past month that various places, including schools, hospitals, and the airport, have received such threats.

On May 12, a total of 20 hospitals in the capital city received similar threats. Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) also received a bomb threat email on the same day. However, all of these threats turned out to be hoaxes.

Additionally, on May 1, bomb threats were sent to around 100 schools in Delhi, two in Noida, and one in Lucknow. These threats were later proven to be hoaxes and were sent using a Russian email service.

Similar threats were also sent to schools in Jaipur, Rajasthan, and Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. In the pink city, at least 37 schools received email threats, leading to the evacuation of students. However, no suspicious items were found despite the prompt arrival of police teams, bomb disposal squads, and sniffer dogs.

In Lucknow, four schools also received bomb threats via email, resulting in the prompt evacuation of students. Security agencies conducted thorough checks, and the UP Police later declared the bomb threats to be hoaxes.
