A synagogue–house of worship in Judaism– in Maharastra’s Thane received a bomb threat via mail on Thursday. Following a threat, police carried out searches at the ‘Gate of Heaven synagogue’ located in the Charai area of the city.
Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) was also sent to the spot and the synagogue was evacuated.
Searches were carried out in the area, however, nothing suspicious was found.
As a precautionary measure, a police team has been deployed in and around the synagogue.
The threat mail was received from email ID–firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the mail, the sender wrote, “I planted bombs inside of your Synagogue. The explosives are well hidden and they will go off soon. We will make sure you all end up dead.”
“We are a terrorist group called: Fuming,” it added.
This comes days after a mysterious explosion was reported behind the Israel embassy in central Delhi on Tuesday evening.
Both incidents come in the wake of the ongoing Israel-Hamas war in Gaza which has led to heavy casualties.
