Two small “gift boxes” caused a flutter in Belgaum on Monday when members of the public panicked suspecting them to be bombs.
However, the bomb detection squad and the dog squad established that the material inside the boxes contained any explosive.
Even as the police and the people heaved a sigh of relief, a suitcase was found abandoned on a roadside near Third Railway gate on Belgaum-Goa Road later in the afternoon. The bomb squad rushed to the spot, carried out inspection, and ruled that it was not a bomb. The Tilakwadi Police has seized the suitcase.
