Delhi government issues advisory to schools after hoax bomb threats

PTC News Desk: After around 100 schools in the national capital and its surrounding areas received hoax bomb threats on Wednesday, the Delhi government issued an advisory to the educational institutes, urging them to check their official emails on a timely basis.

"In view of the current situation wherein bomb threats were received by a few schools of Delhi in early hours of morning of 01.05.2024, it is advised that School Administrators/Managers/Heads of Government/Government Aided and Unaided Recognised Schools under the Directorate of Education, GNCT Delhi should ensure that emails/messages received on official email id of the school at any time of the day (before, during or after school hours) are checked timely," read the advisory.


On Wednesday, the schools received identical bomb threats via email, prompting a mass evacuation and panic among parents. The threat was later confirmed a hoax after police found "nothing objectionable" during their searches.

The authorities have further asked the school management to promptly notify the district education officials in charge and the Delhi Police if anything suspicious is noticed.

"The school authorities should inform parents and concerned law enforcement authorities to initiate appropriate measures regarding safety and security of the students in the event of any impending threats or challenges, well in time," it added.
