New Delhi : The National Investigation Agency (NIA) received three calls from a Pakistani number threatening of blasts in Mumbai and Delhi, which later turned out to be a hoax call, sources said on Monday.
According to NIA source, the anti-terror probe agency received three calls on October 20 at 12.35 p.m. at its control room.
The source said that the caller threatened that a 22-member team has been prepared by Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Maulana Masood Azhar and his brother and are planning of attacks on Mumbai port and Delhi.
