Kolkata:  An abandoned can lying near an escalator at Rabindra Sadan station on Saturday triggered a scare as commuters suspected it to be a bomb which turned out to be a hoax, Metro Railway officials said.

However, train services remained unaffected, a Metro Railway spokesperson said.

Police said soon after receiving information at around 11.10 am, bomb squad officials with sniffer dog reached the spot and began investigation.

A detailed report is awaited.

A senior officer of Bhawanipur Police Station said a stray can was found close to one of the escalators in the Rabindra Sadan metro station that caused panic but primarily it seems to be a hoax.

The can has been taken out for further investigation, he said.
