The Mumbai police on Monday evacuated people from the MLA hostel near Mantralaya in South Mumbai following a bomb scare. The evacuation was carried out late evening after an anonymous caller phoned the police and said a bomb had been placed inside the premises, said sources.

However, Mumbai (zone 1) DCP later said the call turned out to be a hoax. Serving MLAs and their personal assistants had been among those evacuated.

"Around 150 people were there in the building. We have checked thoroughly and have not found any explosive material. We are tracing the phone number. Further action will be taken soon," said Police source.
