North Block, where the office of the Union Home Ministry is situated, received a bomb threat, officials said on Wednesday.

The Delhi Fire Service (DFS) said that a bomb threat mail was received from the Police Control Room at the North Block in New Delhi area.

Upon receiving the threat mail at around 3.30 pm on Wednesday, the police conducted a thorough search through the building and found nothing suspicious.

The police also termed the email as 'fake'.

The IP address and the place of origin of the email are yet to be ascertained.

Sniffer dogs and a bomb squad along with police and fire department personnel are carrying out further

searches at North Block.

This came on the back of a spate of threat mails received by several establishments, including schools, hospitals, airports and government buildings receiving over the last month or so. All turned out to be hoax.

It all began on May 1, when nearly 100 schools in Delhi, two in Noida and one in Lucknow received a bomb threat via email, prompting mass evacuations.

According to sources, the IP address of these emails was traced to Budapest on May 21 and Delhi Police said it would soon be contacting its counterpart in Hungary for further investigation.
