A wave of panic swept through the Delhi NCR region today as around 100 schools received bomb threat emails. The situation prompted immediate evacuations, school closures, and disruptions, leaving parents and students in extreme distress.

Prominent Schools Targeted in Delhi

Several well-known educational institutions found themselves at the center of this alarming situation. Here’s a list of some of the schools that received bomb threats:

  1. Mother Mary’s School in Mayur Vihar
  2. St. Thomas’ Girls Senior Secondary School
  3. Sanskriti School in Chanakyapuri
  4. Army Public School
  5. DPS International School
  6. DPS schools in RK Puram, East of Kailash, Vasant Vihar, Dwarka, Noida, Sector 122, and Knowledge Park 5

The Hoax Threats and Their Impact

While school principals speculate that these bomb threats may be spam emails sent by dissatisfied members of parents’ groups, the consequences have been far-reaching. Over the past few months, such hoax threats have become increasingly common, disrupting school hours and causing extreme anxiety among parents and students.

The Delhi Police swiftly responded to the situation, placing security cordons around the affected school campuses. Search operations are underway to ensure the safety of students and staff. All students have been evacuated and are being taken home as a precautionary measure2.

While no credible devices have been found so far, the nature and scale of the threats have caused immense anxiety among parents and school administrators. The Home Ministry has acknowledged the situation and is likely investigating the source of these malicious emails.

This incident raises serious concerns about the safety and security of educational institutions in the region. It is crucial for authorities to swiftly apprehend the perpetrators and ensure the safety of students and staff.

As authorities investigate the source of these threats, parents, teachers, and students remain on edge, hoping for a swift resolution to this unsettling situation.
