    A youth from Ayanavaram who was disappointed at not getting a movie ticket called the police control room to report that a bomb had been planted at the Brinda theatre.

    The hoax caller, who happened to be the son of a policeman, was arrested on Saturday.

    Alexander, son of police constable Thomas, had gone to Brinda theatre on Thursday evening, to watch the Surya starrer Vaaranam Aayiram. In spite of having waited in the queue for a while, he could not manage to secure a ticket for the show.

    According to a senior police official, "After making the call, he waited outside the theatre to see if the police would actually come to check the movie hall. A bomb disposal team came and carried out a thorough search before dispelling the call as hoax and letting the movie run. However, our superiors wanted us to trace the caller and punish him."

    The police traced the call to Alexander's mobile phone and arrested him. "During interrogation, the youth confessed that he had made the call 'to play a prank' and did not intend anything," police said.

    However, the accused was arrested and remanded to judicial custody for making the hoax call.
