The Karachi University in Pakistan was evacuated on Wednesday following a phone call that had warned of at least three bombs on campus, local media reported. The bomb threat was later found to be a hoax.
An unknown person reportedly called the police emergency number and warned that bombs had been placed on different parts of the campus, Dawn reported. Police teams and bomb disposal squads reportedly reached the Karachi University campus following the bomb threat.
However, The Express Tribune cited a university spokesperson claiming that the reports of a bomb threat on campus were fake and that the university had not been evacuated.
The incident comes a month after a terror attack at the Bacha Khan University in Pakistan's Charsadda district that left 21 people dead.
