A search was initiated on the premises of the Delhi Public School in Mathura Road here after the school administration received a bomb threat via email on Wednesday morning, officials said.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Rajesh Deo, after reviewing the situation, said no suspicious object has been found on the school premises yet.
"The situation is normal. Bomb disposal squad, dog squad and a SWAT team are sanitising the school building," the police officer added.
As the news of the bomb threat spread, panic-stricken parents gathered outside the school in the morning.
The school was evacuated and the fire department was informed about the threat around 8 am. A fire tender was rushed to the spot, officials said.
The Indian School in Delhi's Sadiq Nagar had received bomb threats twice -- in April this year and in November 2022.
The most recent threat to The Indian School was made on April 12 via an email, following which the school was evacuated as the bomb squad and other agencies inspected the premises for any explosive substance. The mail was later declared a hoax.
