New Delhi: A bag with Rs 1.75 lakh in cash, left behind by a lady commuter, caused a bomb scare at a metro station here today.
Officials said the incident was reported from Rajouri Garden metro station at about 11.00 am when a CISF jawan spotted the unattended bag at the X-ray baggage scanner.
He immediately informed his superiors and a bomb detection and disposal team was called in.
However, nothing suspicious was found in the bag and the cash too was found to be intact, said officials.
