Bengaluru: Bomb disposal and dog squads launched a combing operation at the National Hill View Public School, owned by Congress Party President D. K. Shivakumar in Rajarajeshwari Nagar, on Monday July 18 following a threat mail.

According to police, the school management informed the police at around 8.30 am after seeing the threat email.

A bomb disposal squad, a sniffer dog squad, and jurisdiction police were called and rushed to the school, where they searched the whole premises.

The students were shifted from Unit -1 wing to Unit-2 building wing. The parents of the school children panicked and gathered opposite the school premises. Ishwarya, the daughter of Shivakumar comforted the parents explaining to them that the situation was in control.

Araga Jnanedra, Home Minister stated that the police department has taken the development seriously as miscreants have targeted Bengaluru education institutions earlier with hoax bomb threats. “The police squad has reached the school and they are conducting inspections,” he stated. “I have also asked to take action against miscreants,” he stated.

The school has declared a holiday after the incident.

A case has been registered and further investigation is on.
