Chennai Schools Bomb Threat Investigation Update

As mentioned earlier, the investigation for the Chennai Schools Bomb Threat is underway and it still remains unsolved; the police is yet to find out who was behind this hoax call, the pranksters who called to inform about a bomb threat at 13 schools in Chennai. The Cyber Crime Police has now forwarded the case to the Central Crime Branch (CCB).

Special Teams Formed, Police To Seek Help From Switzerland’s Interpol 

Switzerland’s Interpol has come into the conversation because the threat mails were sent from servers in Switzerland; three special teams have been formed to trace down the suspects and find out the culprits. The police is also planning to seek Interpol’s help so that they can find the location of the suspect and also the internet protocol address.

A police officer was quoted as saying in a TOI Report, “The codes were used to trace the IP address of the location from where emails emanated. The emails seem to have been sent from a country in the European Union. However, cyber experts are still investigating if the IP address was masked to cover the original location.”
