A five-star hotel in Mumbai received a hoax bomb threat call on Monday, demanding a ransom Rs 5 crore to avert multiple explosions.
The call was received at Mumbai's Lalit hotel at around 6 pm, said sources.
The unidentified caller claimed that bombs were placed at four locations in the Lalit hotel and threatened to blow them up if the hotel's management refuses to pay them Rs 5 crore ransom.
However, it turned out to be a hoax as no bomb was found anywhere in the hotel during security checks.
Sahar police have registered a case against the unidentified caller under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and further investigation is on.
