Panic sparked after a bomb like object was detected outside a popular shopping mall on July 4, 2012 in Mumbai. The city in the past has witnessed several terror attacks.
But the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad concluded that the object found outside the mall was a dummy article usually used in films. The police reached the spot and had cornered off the area before notifying the bomb squad. Even the Anti-Terrorism Squad and city police crime branch reached the spot and the traffic movement was stopped in the area. The bomb and dog squad reached the spot and examined the object and declared it wasn’t a bomb three hours after it was found.
