POONCH: A bomb scare forcing the suspension of vehicular traffic along Bhimber Gali on Poonch highway has turned out to be hoax after a BDS squad found the bag empty.

On a careful assessment, the bag was however found to be empty by the visiting BDS team, they said.
SDPO Mendhar Z A Jaffri told GNS that following the assurance of BDS officials, the movement along the road was resumed. (GNS)
