Thumbs down 'Bomb scare' in Indian parliament

'Bomb scare' in Indian parliament



India's parliament has been evacuated following a bomb scare.
"We got information that there is a security threat and a possible bomb somewhere in the building," one MP, Chandrashekhar Dubey, told the BBC.

Indian television reports say that the prime minister, who was in parliament, was immediately moved out of the premises by his security detail.

Strict measures have been in place since an attack on the building in 2001 in which 14 people died.

Both houses of parliament were in session when news of a possible threat was received.


We were told they received news from the American Embassy about a bomb threat Hariram Jogaiah, MP



They were immediately adjourned and members asked to leave.


"I can't say whether it is a hoax or it is [credible] information. That will be determined by the security forces," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Priyaranjan Das Munshi said.


Sirens could be heard as cars carrying senior politicians spilled out of the historic parliament complex, in the heart of the Indian capital Delhi.


'Warning'


"We were told they [security officials] received news from the American Embassy about a bomb threat," Congress Party MP, Hariram Jogaiah, told the BBC.


A US embassy spokesman declined to confirm this but said both sides frequently exchanged information on security related issues.

Heavily armed policemen have secured the perimeter of the complex and officers and dogs of the bomb disposal squad have been deployed at the site.

But the speaker of the lower house of parliament, Somnath Chatterjee, told journalists there was no need to panic.

In December 2001, five gunmen shot dead nine people in the parliament grounds before being killed.

India blamed Pakistan for supporting the militants, which Pakistan denied, and the two countries came close to war.

Re: 'Bomb scare' in Indian parliament

What bomb scare? All bull crap.. We must instead open up pur border with Pakistan in ten additional spaces. We should also abolish visas and passports for Pakistanis visiting India. We are a very peaceful nation and I am confident that Pakistan will reciprocate in kind.

I think the next step should be to send a peace committe to Pakistan for discussing CBMs (Confidence Building Measures). Reserve Bank Of India shouls shower some Indian currency and our foreign exchange via helicopter all over the Pak Occupied Kashmir as a sign of support and aid.

Parliament bomb hoax e-mail: Blame it on Osama

[ Friday, December 16, 2005 08:22:36 pmINDIATIMES NEWS NETWORK & AGENCIES ]

NEW DELHI: The Parliament which went into a tizzy following a bomb scare Friday morning, resumed business, after a bomb disposal unit gave an all clear sign.

Both Houses of Parliament were abruptly adjourned around 11:45 am on Friday and all members were evacuated following a bomb threat in the building.

Home Minister Shivraj Patil dispelled fears regarding security and said that there was no need to panic. The bomb threat in Parliament is being inquired into, he further said.

"There is no need to panic. Although the whole thing is being inquired into, we don't want to take any chance," Patil, said, shortly after the Parliament was evacuated following a bomb threat.

The entire Parliament complex had been thoroughly searched and nothing had been found so far. Another search was being carried out, Patil added.

Most members had moved to the Parliament library after the information was received.

The security alert was sounded after the US Consulate received an e-mail threatening a bomb blast at 11:46 am in the Parliament building. The consulate forwarded the e-mail to the Indian security agencies.

Asked whether the US Embassy tipped off the security agencies about the threat, Press Spokesperson at the mission David Kennedy said, "We do not discuss security issues in detail. You have to refer to the government of India for any further details."

Soon after the alert was received, the Prime Minister, Vice President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee and other VVIPs were escorted out, according to a private TV news channel

MPs present in both Houses were asked to vacate the complex and the Prime Minister was sent to the South Block office. The parliament Watch and Ward staff quickly ensured that the visitors and Press galleries were evacuated.

The bomb threat on the Parliament building comes just three days after the fourth anniversary of the December 13 attack on the Parliament.

Security agencies, fire brigade and the police have conducted a search of the premises and security around the building has been tightened. Sniffer dogs have also been employed to detect the presence of any explosives.

BLOW-BY-BLOW : The US Consulate in Chennai receives an email from a group called Insha Allah -- warning that bombs will go off at 11.46 a.m. in the American consulates in India and in Parliament, demanding that New Delhi sever ties with Washington.

The message ended with a trumpeting "Long Live Osama bin Laden!" slogan. US diplomats quickly relay the message to Indian authorities.

The warning was passed on to Speaker Somnath Chatterjee and Chairman Bhairon Singh Shekhawat between 11.52 am and 11.55 am and Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was in the Parliament Building then, but not in the House. He was taken to safety immediately.

Opposition leaders L.K. Advani and Jaswant Singh declined to leave the Building, but Home Minister Shivraj Patil persuaded them to do so for the sake of larger security reasons.
