A 14-year-old was arrested today by the Marakkanam Police for making a hoax call stating that a bomb would explode in the Poes Garden residence of Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in the city.
The boy, identified as Bhuvaneshwaran, had made the call to Marakkanam control room last evening saying that there was a bomb placed in the CM’s residence.
The call created a flutter among the police and investigators immediately traced the caller. They found that he was suffering from mental illness. Further investigation is on.
