Srinagar, Jan 18: A suspicious bag near Qamarwari here led to a bomb scare but nothing was eventually found by the BDS summoned to the place on Tuesday.
Amid two grenades blasts, one near PCR and another at Saraf Kadal, ahead of R-Day celebrations in last two days in Srinagar, the abandoned bag led to the bomb-scare early morning.
A police officer said that the Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) was rushed as soon as the suspicious bag was found. After checking it thoroughly, the bag turned to be empty, the officer said. Traffic which had been temporarily halted through the area was restored, he added. (GNS)
