Mumbai : The Bombay High Court was briefly put on an alert this morning after the police control room here received an anonymous call of a bomb inside the court premises, which later turned out to be a hoax. The anonymous caller allegedly claimed that the bomb had been placed in room number 51 – the office of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur’s staff, a police official said.
