Salman Khan's Galaxy apartments recently became a high security zone after Mumbai Police recived an hoax email telling them that a bomb was scheduled to go off within the next two hours.
The Mumbai Police has booked a boy from Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad for sending a hoax mail to the Bandra police station. "Bandra me Galaxy, Salman Khan ke ghar par agle 2 ghante me blast hoga, rok sakte ho to rok lo (Within the next two hours, a bomb blast will occur at Salman Khan's residence at the Galaxy Apartments in Bandra. Stop it if you can)," the email sent by the boy read and reported Hindustan Times.
Immediately after the mail was recieved on December 4, police officers including Dr Manoj Kumar Sharma, Additional Commissioner of Police, and the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) rushed to Salman's residence and installed heavy security and launched a thorough search of the flat and surrounding areas.
Salman was not at home when the police arrived at his residence. The police team evcuated teh house and moved his family - parents Salim and Salma Khan, and his sister Arpita - from the apartment to a save place.
The BDDS team and other police officials thoroughly searched Galaxy for four hours. "We checked every nook and corner of his apartment, and the building, which took us around three to four hours. Only after that, the family was shifted back to their apartment," an officer from the Bandra police station was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
After Mumbai Police discovered that the email was indeed a hoax, the sender was tracked, a senior police inspector said. A team of police officials, soon after, headed to Ghaziabad while the boy shielded himself at the Tis Hazari Court.
