A 52-year-old man was arrested for making a hoax call claiming a bomb was planted in the West Bengal secretariat Nabanna that also houses the office of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, police said on Monday.

Following the anonymous call on Sunday night, police swung into action dispatching bomb disposal squads and sniffer dogs to the secretariat in Howrah district.

Tracking the call, police subsequently arrested Aniruddha Ghosh from his city residence for making the call.

He will be presented before a court later on Monday.
