An email warning of bombs being planted in the Delhi Public School (DPS) in south-east Delhi’s Mathura Road forced police to evacuate students and other people and launch a search on Wednesday morning, officials said.

As of 10.30am on Wednesday, no explosives were detected in the school premises even though search operations continued, said Rajesh Deo, deputy commissioner of police (south-east)

The officer said that the email warning about the explosives was sent on Tuesday evening, but the school informed police around 8.30am on Wednesday, following which the search was launched.

“We got the school administration to send all the students home. We are conducting the search with bomb detection teams and sniffer dogs,” said Deo.

The DCP said that the email was sent from a server in the United States because of which it would take time to identify the sender.

The bomb threat email comes just days after The Indian School received a similar email a few days ago, forcing a similar evacuation and search which eventually yielded no explosives. It was the second such call at that school in the last six months.

Atleast three school in different parts of Delhi received email threatening a bomb attack on Wednesday. As a precaution, the schools are being evacuated and the Delhi Police are conducting a thorough search of the premises, officials said.

“An email was received this morning at Mother Mary’s School, East Delhi Mayur Vihar regarding a bomb threat. The school is being evacuated and a thorough checking of the school premises is being done,” Delhi Police said in a statement.
