BANGALORE, India Less than a week after Wipro Technologies received a bomb threat which turned out to be a hoax, another Bangalore-based software firm, Infosys Technologies, received a bomb threat around midnight on Monday (March 14).
Police checked the Infosys premises, located on the outskirts of Bangalore, but no bomb was discovered. The earlier threat to Wipro was made by an employee, who when arrested, told police he was worried by what he thought were lax security measures in the company.
Such bomb threats, which though turning out to be hoax calls, assume even more seriousness after the Indian police discovered that a terrorist group had planned to attack some software companies in Bangalore.
The designs of those terrorists were thwarted when the police killed some of them and captured the others Saturday, March 5, in New Delhi.
