Kolkata: A 35-year-old marble mason was today arrested from Dumdum area here for allegedly threatening to blow up a railway station in Pune, police said.
Acting on an information received from Pune police, that a call was made from a number here to a GRP constable threatening to blow up a railway station in the Maharashtra city, Kolkata police arrested the mason, Mohammed Zakir.
Zakir, during interrogation, denied making the threat call and claimed he had been trying to contact his son, who stays in Mumbai, and the call went to a wrong number.
"He (Zakir) said he had an argument with the GRP constable but he had never threatened that he will blow up a railway station," a city police officer said.
Police have started a probe into the background of Zakir, who hails from Jharkhand. A team of Pune police officers would reach the city tomorrow to take custody of Zakir.
