Bangalore Deputy Commissioner of Police Subramanianswara Rao told EF that so far 5 schools in Bangalore and 4 schools in the suburbs have received bomb threats in emails.
Emails warned several schools that “very powerful bombs” had been placed in the centers, after which students were expelled.

The content of the email was broadcast by various media outlets: “A very powerful bomb has been planted at your school. Call the police immediately. Hundreds of lives could be lost, including yours. There is no time to lose. Now everything is in your hands.”
