Mumbai, Nov 28 – Police have arrested a drunk man who called up the Mumbai Police Control Room claiming “some terrorists have entered Mumbai”, official sources said here on Monday.

The call was placed on Sunday – the 15th anniversary of the 26/11 terror strikes.

The caller claimed that the terrorists, numbering two or three, had purportedly landed at Mankhurd’s Ekta Nagar downmarket area and were “planning something’.

After the call, the Mumbai Police swung into action and using tech intel, tracked the caller – identified as one Laxman Naravane. The cops questioned him, while simultaneously investigating the “tip-off” as a standard precautionary measure.

The police found that the man was allegedly heavily drunk when he made the call. The information he had given to the control room also turned out to be false, as per the preliminary probe.

He has been arrested and booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and further investigation was on.
