Firecracker to the moon
Mangalore, Sep 26: As per the latest information from the Infosys campus where a call about a bomb planted in the premises led to evacuation on Thursday September 26, it is now learnt that a wrong number had resulted in the confusion. Instead of connecting the caller to Bombay (Mumbai) the call wrongly went to Infosys!
Police said that the call was made by a maid servant employed at the house of Kotiprasad Alva in Jail Road, Kodialbail.
Police sources said that as Alva was not home, the maid herself dialed the number to Mumbai and speaking in Tulu asked the person on the other end, "Bombay..Bombay?"
The person at Infosys who picked the call, said to be Hannan from Kerala, did not understand the lady's words and wrongly interpreted it as 'Bomb hai' (there is a bomb), which resulted in the panic.
By 4 pm, the employees began shifting back into the building and the situation returned to normalcy.
