The letter was received in the afternoon. As soon as the police go to know of the bomb threat, the entire court premises was fortified and an emergency response team, sniffer dogs and bomb disposal squad were rushed to the spot. The whole area was searched for close to three hours, they said.
After checking vehicles, the parking lot and every nook and corner of the court premises, the police deduced it was a hoax.
Extra police personnel have been stationed at the high court complex.
The police said the source of the letter was not known yet.
