An "abandoned can" lying near an escalator at Kolkata's Rabindra Sadan station today created a flutter as commuters suspected it to be a bomb which turned out to be a hoax, Metro Railway officials said. However, train services remained unaffected. Police said soon after receiving information at around 11.10 am, bomb squad officials with sniffer dogs reached the spot and began an investigation.
A spray can was found close to one of the escalators in Rabindra Sadan metro station that caused panic but primarily it seems to be a hoax. The can has been taken out for further investigation, a senior official said. A detailed report is awaited.
