SRINAGAR: A suspicious bag near Qamarwari here led to a bomb scare ahead of January 26 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 in the last two days in Srinagar, the abandoned bag led to the bomb scare early morning.
Quoting a police officer news agency GNS reported 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 that had been temporarily halted through the area was restored.
