The Mumbai police on Sunday arrested a man from the Juhu area who had made a threat call at the Mumbai Police Control Room earlier today.


"The man who had placed a threat call at Mumbai Police control room arrested from Juhu area by Juhu Police. A case was registered against him. He had placed the call under the influence of alcohol,” said the Mumbai police.


The Mumbai police control room on Sunday morning had received a threat over the phone from an unidentified caller. The caller claimed the possibility of a serial blast in a local train, according to the police.


However, when the police official sought more information on it, the caller did not respond.

"Police control room received a threat call from a man. The caller told Police that serial blasts will take place on a local train in Mumbai. The caller claimed to be speaking from the Vile Parle area and then switched off his phone", said the Mumbai police.

Considering the gravity of the situation, the police alerted the officials.

Earlier on Saturday, a hoax bomb threat was received by the Mumbai Police from an unidentified caller claiming the possibility of a blast or untoward incident at Mumbai and Delhi Domestic and International Airports, officials said.

According to the police, an official of a police station in another state informed Mumbai Police Control Room regarding the claims of an unidentified caller stating the possibility of a bomb blast.

On July 18, Mumbai police received a second threat call in two days, about a bomb planted in the city.

"On Tuesday afternoon, the main control room of Mumbai police received a call about a bomb planted in Mumbai," an official said.

A First Information Report (FIR) was registered against unidentified persons regarding a message received last week, warning of a terror attack in the city if Pakistani woman Seema Haider did not return to her country.

"On Monday, police had received a similar call from a number which was traced to suburban Ghatkopar. The man who allegedly made the call was found to be mentally unstable," officials said.

Earlier, the city traffic control room had received threatening messages on the traffic helpline WhatsApp number.

There were seven messages in Urdu, warning Mumbai police of an incident in the city like the November 26, 2008 ('26/11) terror attack if Pakistani national Seema Haider was not sent back to her country.

A 30-year-old Pakistani citizen, Seema Haider had entered India illegally in May to marry her lover Sachin Meena, a resident of Greater Noida. The two had become friends while playing online game PUBG.

An FIR was registered in this case under section 506 (2) (criminal intimidation by threatening to cause death or grievous hurt) of the Indian Penal Code at Worli police station. (With inputs from ANI)
