The bomb threat calls had been received by Gopalan International School in Mahadevapura, Delhi Public School in Varturu, New Academy School in Marathalli, St. Vincent School in Hennur, Indian Public School, and Hebbagodi Ebenezer School. This created an atmosphere of anxiety, so children and staff had come out of school. The e-mail said that a very powerful bomb has been planted in the school, and hundreds of lives will suffer if they take this warning as a joke. It also asked authorities to call the police and sappers immediately to save the lives of innocents. After receiving the email, there was chaos among the school staff. Following this, the premises was emptied, and the police along with bomb disposal and dog squads carried out search operations.

Additional Commissioner (West) A. Subramanyeshwara Rao said that "99 percent of bomb threats like these turn out to be hoaxes later and there was no need for parents and students to get panicky. Search operations were being conducted on the premises without disturbing the ongoing examinations."
