The information was passed on to other police stations and necessary action was initiated.  A search was conducted to find out whether any bomb had been planted.  Koyambedu police used metal detector and sniffer dogs and conducted a search.  But, police were not able to trace any bomb.  So, police started investigating regarding the person who forwarded bomb threat. 

Police came to know that the phone was owned by Muruganandam, a priest from Vadapalani.  Immediately, police detained Muruganandam and questioned him.  Then, he said that he had lost his mobile phone three days back.  Following information received, police have launched a manhunt to nab the culprit.
