Gurgaon: A mobile phone, claimed to be a bomb and attached to the stomach of a person, created panic among people here, police said Wednesday.

Sanjeev Naul, 35, of Sector 7 here was heading towards his office in Sector 32 when four-five men travelling in Toyota Fortuner and Mahindra Scorpio forced his Toyota Etios car to stop near the Rao Tula Ram Chowk on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway Wednesday afternoon.

They then with scotch tape attached a mobile phone to his stomach, saying it was a bomb, and warned him that it will explode if he moved.

"A visibly scared Naul asked people to keep a distance from him, as he urinated out of fear of being blown to pieces before the police arrived at the spot," a senior police officer told IANS.

"Police detached the bomb, which was attached with packing scotch tape, and called the bomb defusing squad," he said.

The squad found it was a toy mobile set.

Naul runs a labour consultancy firm.

A case against unidentified people was registered at the Civil Lines police station.

"We are investigating it," the officer said.

It was unclear if it was a prank played on Naul as nothing was stolen and he was not robbed of his car.
