The call was received at 10.30 pm on Sunday from the man, who was a labourer.
During the call, the man said "I am a terrorist. PM Modi will be blown up and Delhi will be bombed."

The caller was traced and detained on the basis of the call and he was jointly interrogated by Delhi Police's Special Cell, the Intelligence Bureau and the local police, police said, adding that he was let off.
The call was found to be a hoax. He had liquor following a fight with his landlord and had made the call because he was angry, police added.
