After a quick check by the police, the calls made by Bhuvaneswaran were declared to be a hoax.
Chennai Police Commissioner AK Viswanathan, on speaking to NDTV, said that the call was traced by the police and was made from Cuddalore, after which Bhuvaneswaran was arrested.
"Recently, the same person had called the office of the Puducherry Chief Minister as well warning of bombs," Mr Viswanathan told NDTV.
In 2013, he was arrested on charges of making a hoax bomb threat to late chief minister J Jayalalithaa as well.
