Security was heightened at two railway stations in Goa today following a bomb scare in two Express trains passing through this route this morning, police said, however the bomb threat turned out be a hoax.
Policemen began checking Vasco and Margao railway stations after South Central Railway passed on a message to local police today about the possibility of a bomb being planted in Amravati Express or Goa Express.
“We checked the entire (Margao) railway station. There was nothing incriminating found. A close watch was kept on all the passengers. There was an information that bomb is planted on Amravati Express or Goa Express,” said Police Inspector Santosh Desai attached to Konkan Railway Police.
He said all trains were on time and there was no inconvenience caused to passengers.
Goa Express which was supposed to leave to Delhi was also thoroughly checked at Vasco railway station, a police spokesman said.
