A radio kept in an abandoned bag close to the Assam secretariat here created bomb scare among people but explosive experts, after examining, declared it harmless, police said.

The bag with the radio was found lying at a road outside Bhrigu Market in the busy Ganeshguri area, following which the police cordoned off the area, they said.

Bomb experts rushed to the spot and after examination, it was found harmless.

The area, barely half-a-kilometre from the state secretariat, had witnessed blast during the serial explosions that rocked the state on October 30, 2008 in which over 100 people died.
