A major hotel in Mumbai received a bomb threat.

An unidentified person called the hotel and said bombs had been planted in four places in the hotel, according to ANI.

The person also demanded 50 million rupees to defuse the bombs.

Mumbai Police have registered a case under Sections 336 and 507 of the Indian Penal Code.

Mumbai Police had earlier received a threatening message on their traffic control WhatsApp number saying they would carry out 26/11 type terrorist attacks in the city.

The messages were reportedly received from an international number.

The details of the attack or the terrorists were unclear, but the sender notably indicated that six other people were believed to be involved in the attack.

Central authorities have been involved in the investigation, according to media reports.

One of India’s most horrific terrorist attacks took place on November 26, 2008. Ten terrorists wreaked havoc in Mumbai, killing over 150 people and injuring 300.
