Faulty motorcycle silencer creates panic

New Delhi, July 27 (IANS) A loud sound created by a faulty motorcycle silencer on Monday triggered panic in the national capital, which was put on a high alert following the terror attack in Punjab, police said.

“Initially, we got to know that there was a gun shot near Sena Bhawan. We immediately sent a team at the spot which confirmed that the noise was created after there was a blast in a motorbike’s silencer,” Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Jatin Narwal told IANS.
