A groundnut merchant was arrested here Sunday for making a bomb threat call, saying his friend, a Sri Lankan refugee, had planted an explosive device at Pollachi railway station, police said.
A thorough check at the station since last night, when the call was made, proved the call was a hoax, they said.
Police nabbed the 53-year-old merchant after tracing his call.
On being questioned, he said he had made the call in an inebriated state on Saturday night to get even with his friend, whose wife refused to promptly respond to his queries on the health condition of her father.
