An alert has been sounded in Mumbai after the Bandra railway police station received information on Saturday via a call of a possible bomb attack.

Security has been tightened and all sister agencies informed, Mumbai Police Rail Commissioner Quaiser Khalid said.

He also said that there is no need to panic or worry.

In a subsequent tweet, the officer said the caller has been identified, is staying in Dubai with his mother and is not in his right mind.

“We have verified the bomb threat information. The caller is staying in Dubai with his mother and is not in his right mind. Last week he similarly called an officer in Gandhidham Gujarat and gave similar information,” Khalid said.

He added that the caller’s relatives have “confirmed their habit of giving that information.”

We are investigating more, he said.
