Following a series of blasts in Patna, a suspicious bag that was hung from an electrical pole sent the city police into tizzy for a couple of hours on Monday. Later, it was turned out to be a hoax. Meanwhile, the Task Force teams conducted checks at various film theatres, shopping malls and parks to prevent untoward incidents. Police  issued notices to I-Max and others for their failure to take security measures.

Besides, the Sanatnagar police arrested a person who was moving at the local railway station possessing firearms. Police seized five firearms including a revolver and live rounds from him. According to police, the arrested persons are Mohammed Imran (19) and his friend Ashish Gupta (22). On a tip-off, police detained the duo and seized the weapons from them.

In Malakpet, residents had some tense moments when a bag was found hanging from an electrical pole. Suspecting that the bag that might have contained some explosive material, locals alerted the police.  Police rushed to the spot along with sniffer dogs and bomb disposal teams and conducted through searches. Later, it was turned out to be hoax. It was a bag in which a tiffin box was kept by someone.

Task Force teams visited all shopping malls at Ameerpet and conducted checks. Additional deputy commissioner of police (Task Force) P Rameshaiah said that they issued notices to I-Max and nine other malls at Ameerpet and Begumpet for failure to take adequate security measures.
